"Each type of mask is designed for a specific purpose. Respirators such as N95 will protect against exposure to airborne particles, including viruses. Surgical masks are a barrier to spreading droplets and spit. Non-medical masks help limit the spread of droplets and spit when you sneeze or cough."
"Masks can protect you and others from the COVID-19 virus. It’s important that you care for your mask properly so it will continue to help prevent the spread.Do not re-use disposable masks. Safely throw them away and do not litter. Wash and dry fabric non-medical masks between uses."
