Some common sense advice on masks
3rd August 2020
There's been a lot of debate about masks, so here's some common sense advice from NSW Health.
Masks are not a guaranteed way of avoiding Covid, but they will certainly add to your defences.
Touching an infected surface and then rubbing your eyes, for example, is still a surefire way of becoming infected so regular hand hygiene is just as important.
Masks are strongly recommended if you're out of the house in high-risk places such as supermarkets, on public transport, at church, or in other places where there are a lot of people.
Also, of course, if you're job brings you close a lot of people.
They are not compulsory anywhere in NSW at the moment, but strongly recommended if you're in those types of public situations.
