The Delta and Omicron COVID-19 variants are highly transmissible, so we need to use a range of measures and tools to protect us from infection.
Wearing masks is an important tool that can be used to help minimise the direct spread of the virus in infected particles and droplets. This occurs when an infected person speaks, laughs, coughs, sneezes or breathes (read more on how COVID-19 spreads).
For effective protection, it is essential that any mask used is well-fitting, used correctly, worn consistently and according to guidelines and instructions for their use. Find the mask that best fits to cover your nose, mouth, and chin without gaps above, below or on the sides.
