If you are a healthy person, wear reusable or surgical masks: they reduce the risk of contagion.

If you are a vulnerable or sick person, whether you have symptoms or not, wear a surgical mask.

If you are going to wear a FFP2 mask, avoid masks with an exhalation valve.

Do not wear your mask for more than 4 hours. Change it as soon as it gets damp or damaged: throw it away in the appropriate disposal bin (non-recyclable garbage).

If you wear a reusable mask, wash it with water and detergent at 60ºC or 90ºC in a normal washing machine cycle, or immerse it for 30 minutes in warm water with diluted bleach. Then wash it well with soap and water, rinse it and let it dry.


To wear it properly:

  • Wash your hands with soap and water
  • Take it by the rubber bands
  • Place it over the nose, mouth and chin
  • Place the rubber bands behind your ears
  • Pinch the nose clip to tighten
  • Avoid touching the mask, and if you do, wash your hands


To take it off:

  • Wash your hands with soap and water
  • Remove it by the rubber bands
  • If you are healthy, put it in the trash bag (non-recyclable garbage)
  • If you are infected, put it in a sealed plastic bag and then in the trash bag (non-recyclable garbage)
  • Wash your hands with soap and water


Indications of obligatory use of masks:

  • Persons with symptoms compatible with COVID-19, whether or not they are confirmed cases, should wear a mask.
  • Workers and visitors to health centres, services and establishments and in patients, with the exception of persons admitted to hospital when they remain in their rooms.
  • Workers in social and health care centres.
  • Visitors in shared areas of health and social care centres.
  • Means of transport.


Indications for the recommended use of masks:

  • Vulnerable persons: over 60 years of age, immunocompromised due to intrinsic or extrinsic causes and pregnant women.
