Instructions for the safe use


It is recommended to wear the SHIELD sanitary face mask every time you leave home or an apartment on an emergency errand to a post office, bank, store and similar. You should wear the face mask all the time until you return home. The purpose of the mask is to prevent the infection spreading from the surfaces that you touch with your hands. The mask prevents you from unconsciously touching the mouth and nose with your hands, which is something an average human does every 2.5 minutes, i.e. 23 times per hour.

When you leave home:

  • Before applying the SHIELD sanitary face mask, wash your hands thoroughly in accordance with the NIJZ** (Slovenian National Institute of Public health) recommendations and disinfect them with an adequate disinfectant, if possible.
  • Apply the mask to the face by covering your nose, mouth and chin area. Lock each of the straps behind your ears, so the mask sits tightly yet comfortably. The mask should fit comfortably, but it is not intended to completely seal.
  • After applying the face mask, do not touch the eye area with hands and do not remove the mask until you return home.
  • Running any emergency errands outdoors, take into account the personal safety distance in accordance with the instructions provided by the National Institute of Public Health. Once outside, touch only those objects you absolutely have to come into contact with.
  • Once you return home, thoroughly wash and disinfect your hands.
  • The mask can be washed in the washing machine at 30 °C, and then dried and flattened with an iron at 110 °C (a single mark on the iron). This way, the mask is ready for use again.

Consistent adherence to these instructions and procedures significantly reduces the risk of infection.
