        Will a cloth mask protect me from COVID-19?

        While cloth masks don’t offer the same benefits as a P2 or N95 mask, they can stop the particles that are released when you cough or sneeze from travelling too far in the air. ABC health reporter Olivia Willis has said that “COVID-19 is mostly spread via respiratory droplets” and “face masks can help to catch some of these fluid splashes”.

        They are also a great reminder to stop touching your face, which the World Health Organization has said is important in preventing the transfer of the virus from surfaces to your nose, eyes or mouth.

        It’s important to remember that wearing a face mask will not make you immune from COVID-19 infection and that you should still adhere to social distancing requirements and hygiene practices.


        How to wear a face mask safely

        To ensure your safety and the safety of those around you, it’s important to wear your face mask properly. According to the World Health Organisation, this means washing or sanitising your hands before touching or adjusting the mask so that there are no gaps on the sides of your face.

        You should also avoid touching the mask while you are wearing it and clean your hands before and after using it. The mask should be stored in a reusable bag until you are able to wash it with soap or detergent, which you should do once a day.
