Mask Storage Update

Envelopes will replace paper bags for storage during break and mealtimes. 

Order white, standard business envelopes for your department as you would other paper/office supplies.  

  • Estimate the amount needed per week for your department.  
  • Place orders weekly, being sure to have enough while waiting for delivery.  

Safe Practice Reminders: 

  • Use the mask the entire shift. 
  • Perform hand hygiene before and after removing the mask. 
  • Do not pull mask down below the nose or around neck. 
  • During breaks, store the mask in an envelope for reuse after the break. 
  • Dispose of mask when soiled or damaged (holes, rips, tears). The department leader or designee will determine if a new mask may be issued. 
  • Discard the isolation mask at the end of the shift, or place N95 masks in the collection area for reprocessing.
