We are all still getting used to remembering to leave the house each day with our face masks/coverings, but what are the key benefits of us wearing them?
- You are blocking the possibility of spreading any infection from your mouth or nose to someone else.
- You are taking away the temptation to touch your face, which then reduces the ability to further spread germs.
- You are shielding yourself from someone else’s germs entering your body.
So not only are they protecting yourself, they are protecting those around you too, and now more than ever we need to be thinking of others, and all doing our part to fight back against the virus.
Top tip: Keep a clean mask in your car / bag so you have a back up if you ever leave the house without one, but don’t forget to wash it and replace it once used.
