Face coverings and face masks
Learn about face coverings and how to properly wear, fit, remove and clean your non-medical face mask.
The best way to stop the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) is by staying home and avoiding close contact with others outside of your household.
It is recommended that you use a face covering (non-medical mask such as a cloth mask) to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19 when physical distancing and keeping two-metres’ distance from others may be challenging or not possible, such as:
- public transit
- smaller grocery stores or pharmacies
- when you are receiving essential services
Face coverings will not protect you from getting COVID-19.
Medical masks (surgical, medical procedure face masks and respirators like N95 masks) should be reserved for use by health care workers and first responders.
