Face masks and the current health crisis

While you might see mixed messages in the media even a cursory review of research papers makes it clear that you should:

Wear a mask to help stop the spread of Covid19!!!

The reasons for wearing a mask are:

• The mask acts as a barrier to droplets passing between one person and another.

• The mask prevents the wearer from touching their nose and mouth

• The lower the dose (inoculum) of virus which you might be exposed to by wearing a mask, the better chance your body can mount a defence

• The mask is a visible signal to others that virus transmission prevention is a priority and is becoming a social norm in the current circumstances.
