It is possible to defeat COVID-19 only when the whole community adheres to the guidelines prescribed by World Health Organization(WHO).

Maintain at least a 1-metre distance between yourself and others to reduce your risk of infection when they cough, sneeze or speak. Maintain an even greater distance between yourself and others when indoors. The further away, the better.

Make wearing a mask a normal part of being around other people. Here are the basics of how to wear a mask:

  • Clean your hands before you put your mask on, as well as before and after you take it off
  • Make sure it covers both your nose, mouth and chin

Here are some specifics on what type of mask to wear and when, depending on how much virus is circulating where you live, where you go and who you are.

Wear a fabric mask unless you’re in a particular risk group. This is especially important when you can’t stay physically distanced, particularly in crowded and poorly ventilated indoor settings

Wear a medical/surgical mask if you:

  • Are over 60,
  • Have underlying medical conditions,
  • Are feeling unwell, and/or
  • Are looking after an ill family member.

Respirator masks (such as FFP2, FFP3, N95, N99) should be used in settings where procedures generating aerosols are performed and must be fitted to ensure the right size is worn.
