Who should wear a face mask?
The New Zealand Ministry of Health website says the use of personal protective equipment (PPE), such as face masks, can reduce the spread of infection when used correctly and in the appropriate context.
If you are unwell or have a job which requires you to be in close contact with people who may have coronavirus, it is recommended you use a face mask. It is important that face masks are worn and removed correctly. Masks should fit snugly and fully cover your nose and mouth.
