The Ministry of Health says the best way to stop it is still washing your hands regularly.
"You might feel safer wearing a mask, and you can do that if you want to, but COVID-19 isn't airborne. It's spread by droplets, which means you're most likely to catch it by touching something with a droplet on it (and then touching your face). If you choose to wear a mask or gloves, you still need to wash your hands carefully and often."
The people who need protective equipment are those working with confirmed and suspected cases of COVID-19, the ministry said. You can find information on protective gear, including how and when to use it, on health.govt.nz/covid-19 |the Ministry of Health website|.
I'm working on a travel story for Stuff about the things that have surprised returning Kiwis about New Zealand. If you have recently returned from overseas or know someone who has, it would be great to hear about the things that have stood out for you, for better or for worse. Whether it's to do with the weather, the cost of things, the public transport, the food, the housing, the people or something else entirely, we'd be keen to hear about it. Please remember that your comment may be included in the article, unless you say you don't want it to be. Thank you.
