Please continue to wear a face mask where possible, to protect yourself and others around you.
They're actually more intended to protect others, not the wearer, against the spread of infection. It's because the virus can spread by droplets from coughs, sneezes and speaking. Those droplets can be picked up on surfaces. That's why social distancing, and regular hand hygiene is so very important. And covering any coughs and sneezes of course with a tissue and disposing of it properly.
It's the combination of these three measures that helps stop the spread of coronavirus:
- Keep your distance, as per social distancing
- Wash your hands regularly and thoroughly
- Wear a face covering, that fits over your nose and mouth
The NHS are continuing to provide the care they need to and to help them and patients within our hospitals, care homes and health settings, it is best if you continue to wear a face mask.
