Guidance
1) WHO recommends that persons with any symptoms
suggestive of COVID-19 should (1, 2):
• wear a medical mask, self-isolate, and seek medical
advice as soon as they start to feel unwell with
potential symptoms of COVID-19, even if
symptoms are mild. Symptoms can include: fever,
cough, fatigue, loss of appetite, shortness of breath
and muscle pain. Other non-specific symptoms such
as sore throat, nasal congestion, headache,
diarrhoea, nausea and vomiting, have also been
reported. Loss of smell and taste preceding the onset
of respiratory symptoms have also been
reported.(64, 65) Older people and
immunosuppressed patients may present with
atypical symptoms such as fatigue, reduced
alertness, reduced mobility, diarrhoea, loss of
appetite, delirium, and absence of fever.(26, 66, 67)
It is important to note that early symptoms for some
people infected with COVID-19 may be very mild
and unspecific;
• follow instructions on how to put on, take off, and
dispose of medical masks and perform hand
hygiene;(68)
• follow all additional measures, in particular
respiratory hygiene, frequent hand hygiene and
maintaining physical distance of at least 1 metre (3.3
feet) from other persons.(42)
In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is recommended
that all persons, regardless of whether they are using masks
or not, should:
• avoid groups of people and crowded spaces (follow
local advice);
• maintain physical distance of at least 1 metre (3.3
feet) from other persons, especially from those with
respiratory symptoms (e.g. coughing, sneezing);
• perform hand hygiene frequently, using an alcoholbased handrub if hands are not visibly dirty or soap
and water;
• use respiratory hygiene i.e. cover their nose and
mouth with a bent elbow or paper tissue when
coughing or sneezing, dispose of the tissue
immediately after use, and perform hand hygiene;
• refrain from touching their mouth, nose, and eyes.
2) Advice to decision makers on the use of masks for the
general public
Many countries have recommended the use of fabric
masks/face coverings for the general public. At the present
time, the widespread use of masks by healthy people in the
community setting is not yet supported by high quality or
direct scientific evidence and there are potential benefits and
harms to consider (see below).
However, taking into account the available studies evaluating
pre- and asymptomatic transmission, a growing compendium
of observational evidence on the use of masks by the general
public in several countries, individual values and preferences,
as well as the difficulty of physical distancing in many
contexts, WHO has updated its guidance to advise that to
prevent COVID-19 transmission effectively in areas of
community transmission, governments should encourage the
general public to wear masks in specific situations and
settings as part of a comprehensive approach to suppress
SARS-CoV-2 transmission (Table 2).
WHO advises decision makers to apply a risk-based approach
focusing on the following criteria when considering or
encouraging the use of masks for the general public:
1. Purpose of mask use: if the intention is preventing the
infected wearer transmitting the virus to others (that is,
source control) and/or to offer protection to the healthy
wearer against infection (that is, prevention).
Advice on the use of masks in the context of COVID-19: Interim guidance
-7-
2. Risk of exposure to the COVID-19 virus
­ due to epidemiology and intensity of transmission in
the population: if there is community transmission
and there is limited or no capacity to implement
other containment measures such as contact tracing,
ability to carry out testing and isolate and care for
suspected and confirmed cases.
­ depending on occupation: e.g., individuals working
in close contact with the public (e.g., social workers,
personal support workers, cashiers).
3. Vulnerability of the mask wearer/population: for
example, medical masks could be used by older people,
immunocompromised patients and people with
comorbidities, such as cardiovascular disease or diabetes
mellitus, chronic lung disease, cancer and
cerebrovascular disease.(69)
4. Setting in which the population lives: settings with high
population density (e.g. refugee camps, camp-like
settings, those living in cramped conditions) and settings
where individuals are unable to keep a physical distance
of at least 1 metre (3.3 feet) (e.g. public transportation).
5. Feasibility: availability and costs of masks, access to
clean water to wash non-medical masks, and ability of
mask wearers to tolerate adverse effects of wearing a
mask.
6. Type of mask: medical mask versus non-medical mask
Based on these criteria, Table 2 provides practical examples
of situations where the general public should be encouraged
to wear a mask and it indicates specific target populations and
the type of mask to be used according to its purpose. The
decision of governments and local jurisdictions whether to
recommend or make mandatory the use of masks should be
based on the above criteria, and on the local context, culture,
availability of masks, resources required, and preferences of
the population.
