from the Blog The Importance of Face Masks in 2020 and the Future

Why Face Masks Are Important

COVID-19 is a respiratory disease and it usually spreads between individuals when an infected person is in close contact with another; the small liquid particles when someone talks, coughs, sneezes or breathes heavily can transmit the virus via inhalation or transmission through the mouth, nose or eyes.

Face masks reduce the spread of respiratory droplets. They also provide further benefits too:

Faces masks encourage other IPC (infection prevention control) measures and behaviours like avoiding touching eyes, nose and mouth, and hand hygiene.

As well as the novel virus, face masks also prevent the transmission of other respiratory illnesses, keeping everyone safe.
