Face masks, when combined with frequent hand washing, staying home when sick and social distancing, can help stop the spread of COVID-19.

COVID-19 is spread through respiratory droplets that are released when a sick person coughs, sneezes, or breathes.  Masks provide additional protection because they act as a simple barrier for those respiratory droplets.  In some cases, those with COVID-19 do not show any symptoms at all, and may not realize they have it. This is why it's recommended that all who are able wear a mask outside in public and around people outside of your household. Wearing a mask is not guaranteed to prevent you from getting COVID-19, however, you are helping to protect others from getting it.
