How to put on a KN95/N95 mask

January 17, 2022

The following video created by RRC Polytech Safety and Health Services gives step-by-step instructions on how to properly don and doff (put on and take off) a KN95 or an N95 mask.

Putting on your mask:

  • Wash or sanitize your hands
  • Take your mask by the straps and put them behind your ears
  • Ensure the bottom of the mask fully covers your chin
  • Once your mask is in place, gently press the nose piece so it fits snug against your face

How to remove your mask:

  • Hold the straps to remove the mask, avoiding contact with the front of your mask
  • Discard the mask
  • Wash or sanitize your hands
