What is StayMasked?
StayMasked is a Stay Prepared initiative led by Temasek Foundation. It provides the Singapore community with masks for added coverage, protection and assurance.
Why we wear a mask
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.
