Slow the spread
Wearing a face mask is one of the steps in slowing the spread of COVID-19. Face masks help reduce the number of respiratory droplets released into the air when a person talks, coughs, or sneezes. Various studies and researches have shown that many people with COVID-19 lack symptoms and unknowingly transmit the virus to others. Thus, wearing face masks ensures the safety of the people around you and helps reduce the risk of being exposed to COVID-19. The CDC recommends wearing face masks while in public settings and crowded places. In addition to wearing a mask, remember to other preventive protocols such as physical distancing and frequent hand-washing.
