Should I be wearing a face covering during the COVID-19 outbreak?
Coronavirus COVID-19 spreads through droplets that are expelled when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can be inhaled by other people or land on surfaces that other people may touch and then ingest by touching their eyes, nose or mouth.
In England, Scotland and Northern Ireland, people are being advised to consider wearing face coverings* in enclosed public spaces where social distancing is more difficult, eg on public transport and in shops.
The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control(link is external) (ECDC) has said that the use of face coverings in public places may reduce the spread of infection in the community when worn by people who might not realise they’re infected.
