Face coverings help prevent people who don’t know they have the virus from spreading it to others. They should be worn anywhere it’s difficult to stay 2 m apart, like shops or public transport, or when visiting anyone who is more at risk.
This includes people aged over 70, or people who are medically vulnerable, including many people with disabilities. Wear a face covering to show your support for others, and to help in our fight against COVID-19.
See Department of Health and HSE information on face coverings:
