COVID-19 can be spread by people who do not have symptoms and do not know that they are infected. Masks may help prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus to others. Masks, when worn over the nose and mouth, reduce the spray of respiratory droplets when the person wearing them coughs, sneezes, talks, or shouts. https://bit.ly/3ee8iP4external icon
