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 am the Principal of Puketaha school with a masters in Educational Leadership from the University of Waikato.
The last few months has rocked our equilibrium and as a result we have a unique opportunity to ensure that the Wel Energy Trust really delivers on the needs and aspirations of our community. It requires both a strategic approach and strong moral compass to achieve positive, tangible outcomes for our customers and region. I bring experience, Independence and can collaborate with anyone to drive such results in a fair and equitable manner.
Born, raised and educated in Hamilton, this place is home to my family, which includes my wife and two boys (11 and 9).
The many families I interact with daily provide me inspiration and energy to join a board that will be driven to support the Waikato Region's prosperity.
