• Make wearing a well-fitting mask a part of your regular routine when in shared spaces with people from outside your immediate household.
  • Medical masks are recommended for:
    • Anyone who has tested positive or has symptoms of COVID-19
    • People caring for someone who has tested positive or has symptoms of COVID-19, or is a household contact living in an overcrowded setting
    • People who are at risk of more severe disease or outcomes from COVID-19 and
    • People who are at a higher risk of exposure to COVID-19 because of their living situation.
  • Individuals in the above situation could also consider using a respirator.
  • A respirator worn in the community doesn’t need to have been formally fit tested as is required in some occupational settings.
