Wear this, not that: proper mask to don

Airmen will adhere to five elements of military professional standards when wearing cloth face covers in uniform: neatness, cleanliness, safety, uniformity, and military image. Commanders will ensure face coverings worn by uniformed military members are conservative, professional, and in keeping with dignity and respect. Once standardized covers are available we will cease wearing personally procured masks in uniform, but in the meantime remember that you should continue to represent your service in a positive manner.
