COVID-19 is spread from person to person through respiratory droplets and can spread before symptoms develop. Face masks that cover your mouth and nose can prevent the spread of transmission in two ways:
- Prevent infectious individuals from spreading their respiratory droplets.
- Act as a barrier by preventing respiratory droplets from entering into the wearer’s nose and mouth.
The City of Nashua Division of Public Health and Community Services encourages people to take measures to continue to protect themselves.
