Wearing a face mask is recommended to help prevent the transmission of highly infectious diseases, such as coronavirus (COVID-19).
During the global coronavirus pandemic, wearing a mask contributes to keeping each of us safe. COVID-19 spreads through person-to-person transmission and is generally contracted through droplets in the air. These droplets are spread through activities such as coughing, sneezing, speaking or laughing. Wearing a face mask helps to prevent the spread of these droplets and the transmission of coronavirus.
When you are in a setting where it is difficult to physically distance – such as the workplace or caregiving scenarios – a face mask is your best form of defence.
In general, wearing a face mask stands alongside physical distancing, hand hygiene, and cough and sneezing etiquette as the best ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The efficacy of face masks has been strongly supported in a range of scenarios. In laboratory studies, face masks have been shown to block the droplets that are spread when people cough, thus reducing the likelihood of coronavirus spreading.
