Public use of Face Masks has been common in South Africa and other nations since the beginning of the new coronavirus outbreak. It is becoming increasingly clear that all people should be wearing masks while out in public. Masks are likely the reason why the virus has been better controlled.

Protecting Others, Not You

Masks should be worn anytime you are in public or people are nearby. Masks act as a physical barrier to protect you and others from viral bacterial particulates. Many people unknowingly infect others by going out and spreading germs by coughing and touching others. You can go out in public without a mask if there is no one nearby. Otherwise, regardless if it’s close or spaced out, you should wear a mask with others around. This is precaution and courtesy to yourself and those nearby you.

Wearing a mask is good for two reasons: It’s going to cut down 95 percent of the breathing that sends the virus up to 6 feet away in a room, and also will reduce oral transmission by preventing the transmission by preventing the virus from getting into your nose and mouth. If you touch a contaminated surface and then your face, this will help slow down the virus a lot.

Stay Vigilant On Other Measures

Social distancing and handwashing are important. Masks may lead to a false sense of protection. If you put on a mask and then go into a grocery store and touch everything, your risk is going to go up. Avoid handling the cloth without washing your hands. Cloth masks should be washed daily after every extended use.
