Sight Loss Council Covid-19 Guidance: Wearing a mask.

The Sight Loss Council has produced guidance and a helpful video on how to put on and take off a mask if you are blind or partially sighted.

From the 15th of June the government have made it compulsory that you wear a face mask or face covering when you access public transport, hospitals or other health settings. It is also advisable to wear a face-covering when in shops to ensure the safety of yourself and those around you.

There are a range of masks available to buy, and although they may vary in their design, they all perform the same role of covering your mouth and nose at the same time to protect you from breathing in the coronavirus droplets.
