We have cross-checked all the latest research on the use of face masks during the pandemic.

We recommend using face masks when you are in a confined or crowded public space, you are vulnerable to severe COVID-19, or you have a sick person in your household.

Face masks will be most effective if you also follow physical distancing, proper hand hygiene and good ventilation practices.
