StayMasked is a Stay Prepared initiative.
It provides the Singapore community with reusable masks for added coverage, protection and assurance, as well as to encourage people to don masks when they head out for essential purposes.
When we speak, cough, sneeze or laugh, we spread our germs via our saliva.
Wearing masks helps reduce the spreading of germs in public, and when we meet others.
This is important because people infected with COVID-19 may not show any symptoms.
Wearing masks therefore provides some protection. Washing our hands frequently and practising safe distancing are also important in our fight against the virus.
