Hear from Sonya English, critical care outreach nurse, and PreKure Faculty member:
1. If you strictly follow the government recommended guidelines, masks are not needed.
2. N95 (specialist personnel protection equipment, PPE) masks should not be used by the public. They are for health care workers only.
3. If you do wear a surgical mask, be mindful of how you use it. Incorrect use is a risk to yourself and others.
Each day for the foreseeable future we here at PreKure are coming to you live at 8PM New Zealand-time on Facebook to talk about issues regarding COVID-19. Go to our Facebook page here.
