Wearing a mask—together with handwashing and social distancing—is one of the best tools we have to protect ourselves and those around us from COVID-19. During #WorldMaskWeek, we asked people to share how they #WearAMask by posting a picture or video their social media channels. In 117 countries around the world via media coverage and social media, from business leaders to government leaders, and from celebrities to people living their daily lives– there was an outpouring of support for wearing masks in public to help put an end to this pandemic. Read more about the results of World Mask Week here.
Read our Why Masks Matter policy briefing which sets out the mounting global evidence that wearing a mask can help slow the spread of COVID-19 and learn what governments, citizens and businesses can do to promote widespread mask usage as an evidence-based intervention.

By wearing a mask, you are sending a message of solidarity and protecting other people, especially those most vulnerable to #COVID19.

Mask wearing, hand washing, and physical distancing are three of our best tools to fight #COVID19 – until we have a vaccine. Together, they can help us protect each other & turn the tide of the pandemic.

Proud to be part of the #WearAMask Challenge! Wearing a face covering consistently and correctly is one of the most important things we can do as individuals to fight COVID-19.

Masks can help prevent the spread of #COVID19 when they are widely used in public. When you wear a mask, you can help protect those around you. When others wear one, they can help protect people around them, including you. https://t.co/dfdldQbV0A #WorldMaskWeek pic.twitter.com/GSQpXC0BJj— U.S. Surgeon General (@Surgeon_General) August 8, 2020
Thank you for nominating me for this challenge! Wearing a mask protects both ourselves and others around us. The more people we can encourage to wear masks, the sooner we can overcome this crisis. – LHL #WearAMask https://t.co/NVVPIFt1w3 pic.twitter.com/4aquB83oQq— leehsienloong (@leehsienloong) August 8, 2020
