Wearing a face mask protects other people from COVID-19 and other respiratory diseases in case you are infected. While many people may have symptoms when sick, others may be infected and not feel sick. When everyone wears a mask, the risk of spreading COVID-19 from person-to-person lowers. 

It's important to properly wear a face mask. The mask should cover your mouth and nose to be most effective.
