5. PPE; facemask

information on facemasks

Facemasks can be worn to help protect those around you and should be worn by people who are sick.

A non-medical mask or face covering acts as a barrier and helps stop the tiny droplets from your mouth and nose when you are talking, coughing, or sneezing from entering the air and landing on other people or surfaces around you.

While non-medical masks and face coverings are helpful in containing your own droplets, they will not protect you from COVID-19. Masks and face coverings do not replace maintaining a safe distance of 2 meters from others when you are out, regularly and thoroughly cleaning your hands, and staying home if you are sick. They are another prevention tool you can use to help stop the spread of germs.

Medical masks and N95 respirators should be reserved for health-care workers. During health-care procedures in which aerosol sprays may be generated (for example, when giving certain inhaled medications or during intubation), health- care workers wear specialized masks and personal protective equipment (PPE) to provide a barrier against infectious diseases like COVID-19.

If you choose to wear a non-medical mask or face covering, it is important to not touch your face when wearing it. A false sense of security can occur and it is likely to increase the number of times a person will touch their own face. There is a potential risk of infection with incorrect use, incorrect placement, and when putting it on or taking it off.

Porto provides all staff with both disposable facemasks as well as washable.
