Face masks have become a part of everyday life for most of the world during this pandemic. Like them or hate them, they’re here to stay. During our periods of zero cases in Melbourne and Sydney, we may have been hopeful that we saw the end of masks. Unfortunately, the virus proves to be a pest and resurfaces again and again across Australia. Melbourne is up to lockdown no.5 and we have a feeling that this is not the end of it! And it does not look much better in Sydney. The other states in Australia are experiencing lockdowns as well.
Wear Masks Correctly
The health experts advise us to wear a mask when we can’t socially distance ourselves from others. The purpose of wearing a mask is ‘to stop yourself from spreading the virus to other people’. Masks, if worn properly, can help to stop the spread of the virus. When wearing a mask, it must cover your mouth and your nose for it to be effective. Wearing masks under your nose, or pulled down to your chin will not offer any form of protection!
Single-use or Re-usable Masks?
When it comes to choosing a mask, we have some options. While there is the option of single-use surgical masks, there are also reusable fabric face coverings. Both types of masks must be worn and looked after correctly. The single-use masks should only be used once for them to be effective. They are readily available in boxes from your local supermarkets. There are many different suppliers of fabric face mask covers. They are available online or in retail stores. The cloth masks must be washed with laundry detergent.

Support Local – Masks For Protection
While masks offer some protection and slow down the spread of the virus, we must listen to the advice given by health experts. The best way to stop the spread of infection is to wear your mask correctly, practise social distancing, stay home if you are feeling unwell and get tested if you feel sick. Follow medical advice if you test positive for the virus.
