Handling hearing aids with care

Wearing hearing aids first and then placing the face mask over the hearing aids helps secure hearing aids in place. It is helpful to frequently check that the hearing aids are still securely positioned during donning and removal of the face mask.

When removing your face mask, carefully remove one side at a time. Do not pull the mask off. Hold the body of the hearing aid with one hand while removing the strap with the other hand so that the hearing aid does not fall off.  It is better to remove the hearing aids at one spot while seated so that it is easier to locate the hearing aids even if they fall off.
