Personal protective equipment must be changed in a timely manner. It is important to remember that in a pocket or bag, the mask will only collect dust and dirt.

If irritation appears on the face under the mask, then some protective equipment should be resorted to. However, as doctors explain, the main thing is not to overdo it.
