Can a face mask protect me from coronavirus?
Masks are effective at capturing droplets, which is a main transmission route of coronavirus, and some studies have estimated a roughly fivefold protection versus no barrier alone (although others have found lower levels of effectiveness).
If you are likely to be in close contact with someone infected, a mask cuts the chance of the disease being passed on. If you’re showing symptoms of coronavirus, or have been diagnosed, wearing a mask can also protect others. So masks are crucial for health and social care workers looking after patients and are also recommended for family members who need to care for someone who is ill – ideally both the patient and carer should have a mask.
The HSE (Health and Safety Executive) recommend that you change your disposable face masks daily for full effectiveness.
There are a few different types of face masks and coverings. Not all masks are the same. A "fake" face mask is extremely harmful as it exposes the person wearing it to airborne viruses. Hive pharmacy carefully selects masks that have all the required certificates of compliance to ensure your protection.
Masks are being sold at retail outlets that do not have the same level of care when choosing products for sale. We urge you to carefully choose the retailer for your face mask.
