#MaskUpMichigan
Wearing a mask can greatly reduce the chance of spreading #COVID19. To learn how a mask works, visit Michigan.gov/MaskUpMichigan.

How A Mask Works

  • COVID-19 spreads mainly among people who are in close contact.
  • All of us have droplets in coughs and sneezes that can carry COVID-19 to others.
  • Coughs spray droplets at least 6 feet. Sneezes travel as far as 27 feet. Droplets also may spread when we talk or raise our voices.
  • These droplets can land on your face or in your mouth, eyes, and nose.
  • When you wear a mask, it keeps more of your droplets with you.
  • A mask also adds an extra layer of protection between you and other people’s droplets.
