Coughing or sneezing? Mask on! Not feeling sick? Save masks for those who need them! Especially those with symptoms and caring for the sick.

The Facts

COVID-19 spreads through respiratory droplets. Avoid close contact (1 metre) with people who are unwell and avoid touching surfaces or other infected individuals. Face masks can help slow the spread of infection by preventing contact with the mouth, nose, and face.
