If you don’t already have something that would cover your face, such as a scarf or mask, then you can make your own face covering to help stop the spread of coronavirus. Watch this short video to learn how to make a face covering. Children under 11 and people who have a legitimate reason, for example, people living with a disability and those with breathing difficulties, do not need to wear a face covering.
