#WorldMaskWeek is a global movement to inspire more people to wear face coverings to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Take Action!

Until we have vaccines or medicines to fight COVID-19, wearing a mask—together with handwashing and social distancing—is one of the best tools we have to protect ourselves and those around us.  Especially when governments implement effective systems to test and trace contacts. Growing evidence demonstrates that by wearing a mask in public places, everyone can help slow the spread of the disease and save lives.

We’re asking everyone to share how you #WearAMask during #WorldMaskWeek by posting a picture or video on your social channels and tagging friends to share their pics.
