While a face mask will not make you immune to COVID-19, it can stop particles that are released when you cough or sneeze from travelling too far in the air. According to ABC health reporter Olivia Willis, "COVID-19 is mostly spread via respiratory droplets" and "face masks can help to catch some of these fluid splashes".
Face masks also serve as a reminder to stop touching your face, which the World Health Organization has said is important in preventing the transfer of the virus from surfaces to your nose, eyes or mouth.
Masks will not stop you from contracting the virus, so you should continue to adhere to recommendations on personal hygiene and social distancing when wearing one.
For your mask to be as protective as possible, it is important that it is worn properly. According to the World Health Organization, this means that the mask should cover your nose and mouth and have no gaps around the sides of your face. You should also wash or sanitise your hands before and after touching your mask.
When wearing your mask, you should avoid touching it or taking it off to speak to others. Once you remove your mask, it is advised that you place it in a zip lock bag until you are able to wash it, which you should do after each wear.
If you are having trouble sourcing a face mask, you may want to consider making your own. Check out our guide on how to make a face mask at home.

Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
