Will we get Face masks if not space in Mail centres

If Mail centres cannot create "social distance" between us, can they at least issue "face masks".
Some people are in high risk catergories and cannot afford to get this virus.

Will we get Face masks if not space in Mail centres

22 Mar 2020, 20:33

We would not be issuing masks as PPE against coronavirus. The World Health Organization guidance on when to use a mask says states that it is only beneficial to stop the spread of the virus for:

• People who are ill, coughing and sneezing to reduce them from spreading the virus to others.
• People who are caring for, or in close contact with someone who is infected. People who are healthy only need to wear a mask if they are taking care of a person with suspected 2019-nCoV infection.

Further information on the use of face masks can be found on the WHO website...
