Wearing a tight mask

Your mask should fit tight around the sides, so as to keep particles out. However, it shouldn’t be too tight over your nose and mouth. If it’s too tight in those areas, air will be forced to go out and around the mask, rather than through it. A good fit is securely on at the edges – chin, cheeks, bridge of the nose – but has some room directly over your nose and mouth for easy breathing.
