What is the United Kingdom government's advice on wearing face masks?”

The UK government has given advice on wearing face masks outside.

Whether you're handy with a sewing machine, like cutting up old t-shirts or just want a quick fix, the principles are the same: the more layers of material the better, and the mask needs to fit snugly around the face, and you should be able to breathe comfortably. People with coronavirus symptoms, as well as members of their household, should continue to follow the advice to self isolate.

They may be beneficial in places where it is hard to follow maintain social distancing measures. This applies when using public transport, such as trains, buses and metro systems, or when visiting shops.

Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.

The public is being strongly urged not to purchase surgical masks or respirators, which are prioritised for healthcare workers working in more high-risk environments where the risk is greatest.


"Face-coverings are not meant to help the wearer, but to protect against inadvertent transmission of the disease to others if you have it asymptotically".

Mr Johnson also said that fines for breaching the rules would increase, adding: "You must obey the rules on social distancing and to enforce those rules we will increase the fines for the small minority who break them".

At all times our strategy for keeping the public and the NHS safe during this crisis has been guided by the science.

The U.S. president has not been wearing a mask in public despite health advice from his administration encouraging people to do so to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Instead a face covering is sufficient and we encourage people to make these at home with items they will already own.

"Homemade cloth face-coverings can help reduce the risk of transmission in some circumstances". Remember you might need more than one, so you have something to use while the other is being washed.

U.S. President Donald Trump (L) inspects a workplace for protective face masks in a Honeywell facility in Phoenix, Arizona, U.S., May 5, 2020. Wearers must ensure they use coverings correctly and wash their hands before putting them on and removing them, the guidance states.

England's chief medical officer, Prof Chris Whitty, stressed that face coverings were "not a substitute" for physical distancing.

And under the new advice, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced the public should be wearing home made face masks when they are getting on public transport.
