To reduce the spread of coronavirus, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommend that people wear non-medical cloth face masks when they’re out in public. Face masks, however, don’t offer complete protection because they don’t shield the wearer’s eyes.

Caring for and wearing your cloth face mask:

If you’re going to wear a mask in public, you should wash your hands before putting it on, so that you get rid of germs like the coronavirus and they don’t end up on your face.

If you don’t have access to soap and water, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer as recommended by the World Health Organization.

In addition, don’t touch your face (especially your eyes), when you’re wearing a mask because you could touch a surface where the coronavirus is present and then transfer the virus to your face.

Remember, this is all about me protecting you and you protecting me. This is about us coming together as communities.

 Very important: Always make sure you discuss and make decisions about your eye care based upon a formal appointment with your optician.
