 Which kind of mask should we use while traveling


Everybody should follow the advice of the travel company. If the type of mask is not specified then people 60 years and over, and those who have underlying health conditions, should wear a medical mask while traveling. This provides greater protection from others who may have the virus.

People who feel healthy and have no symptoms can wear a fabric mask to prevent any virus they may have from spreading to others.

Remember that wearing a mask does not provide full protection. You should always combine this with frequent hand cleaning, covering a cough or sneeze with a bent elbow or tissue, and maintaining at least a 1 metre distance from others wherever possible.
