Evidence suggests that face coverings can help us protect each other and reduce the spread of disease if you are suffering from coronavirus, but not showing symptoms.
To protect yourself, you should stay alert, continue to follow social distancing measures and isolation guidance and wash your hands regularly. These can be found on the government website www.gov.uk.
Face coverings are not the same as the surgical masks or respirators. These should continue to be reserved for those who need them to protect against risks in their workplace.
You can purchase non-surgical face coverings or make your own cloth covering out of a T-shirt. Details are also available on the government website. Follow the link: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/how-to-wear-and-make-a-cloth-face-covering/how-to-wear-and-make-a-cloth-face-covering
