Fred Campbell, General and Hospital Medicine, said when hand washing your mask, use hot, soapy water and then scrub for 20-30 seconds.
“Soap actually surrounds the COVID-19 viruses and destroys them. Dissolves them,” he said.
Dr. Campbell said it’s important to wash your hands after touching your mask when you are done using it. If you touch the front of your mask you should clean your hands again.
