How a Mask Works

  • How it works
    • COVID-19 spreads mainly among people who are in close contact.
    • All of us have droplets in coughs and sneezes that can carry COVID-19 to others.
    • Coughs spray droplets at least 6 feet. Sneezes travel as far as 27 feet. Droplets also may spread when we talk or raise our voice.
    • These droplets can land on your face or in your mouth, eyes and nose.
    • When you wear a mask, it keeps more of your droplets with you.
    • A mask also adds an extra layer of protection between you and other people’s droplets.
