Why You Should Always Wear Your Face Masks

People are beginning to throw all precautions from contacting Covid-19 into the wind. However, here are 5 reasons why you should always wear your face masks:

  1. Wearing a face mask will help prevent the spread of infection and prevent you from contracting air-borne infections when someone besides you coughs or sneezes

  2. A face mask reminds you not to touch your face which protects you from the virus on your hands. This is because COVID-19 can be transferred from surfaces to your hands, which could lead to an infection if you touch your face.

  3. A face mask protects others from contracting the virus just in case you are one of the asymptomatic carriers of the virus.

  4. As a health worker, it is particularly important for healthcare providers who are in close proximity to patients with COVID-19 to wear protective face masks in order to avoid contacting the virus. Also, if you find yourself in a hospital, wearing a face mask will surely protect you from the virus.

  5. If you are sick and have symptoms like cough, fever, fatigue, and loss of smell/taste, or you have been in contact with someone ill, you should always wear a mask around people.
