Canadian officials now recommend wearing non-medical face masks

Coronavirus outbreak: Trudeau, health officials on new recommendations for wearing non-medical masks Canadians should wear masks as an 'added layer of protection,' says Dr. Tam

But he added that individuals also need to contribute.

The prime minister said the government is still working to find out exactly what help the provinces need most.

Canadian authorities have been sending mixed messages on the need for the public to wear masks.

"So if two people are wearing masks, I'm protecting you and you are protecting me", Tam said.

"Use of non-medical or face coverings is recommended as an added layer of protection", she said.

But then on April 3, less than a month after the Surgeon General said masks are not effective against the spread of the disease, the CDC updated their protocols and featured a video of the Surgeon General giving a quick tutorial on how to make an at-home face covering if one does not have access to a mask.

Tam's new mask directive comes as stay-at-home orders are lifting in different provinces and more people are going outside, riding public transit, or visiting stores.

Canada's chief public health officer says Canadians should wear a mask as an "added layer of protection" whenever physical distancing is not possible.

Smalldon runs a Facebook group to help people in her area during the pandemic and recently began communicating with companies in her network that have retooled their operations to make personal protective equipment.

"I believe that our community understands how important it is to protect other people", she said in an interview. The experts did not recommend using a disinfectant to spray the mask, as you'd be breathing it in the next time you wear the mask.

"When it is possible for me to keep two metres distance from people, that is what I prefer to do", he said. It is for you to protect others.

While there is no clear-cut answer on the subject of masks, it appears that if someone is able to wear one without coming under medically-related distress, then it is encouraged they do so when around others. "Would that have made a difference?"

"Taking strong, collaborative action to expand testing and contact tracing is important for both Canadians and businesses to have confidence that we're on the right foot", Trudeau said at a morning news conference.

Number one, said Dr. Luke Davis, an epidemiologist at the Yale School of Public Health, is "don't touch your mask".

"You can now spend time with close friends and family members who you would normally see on a regular basis", Higgs said.

Canada doesn't have a particularly high immunity rate from COVID-19, she said, because most of the population has not contracted the virus.

"We have a situation where these are private business offices and they can set the rules", said Stanwick.

"This virus can accelerate really quickly".

Dr. Tam said some evidence suggests that COVID-19 can be spread by people who aren't showing symptoms.

More than a million Indigenous people live in cities or off reserves, Trudeau said, and they deserve good services that are culturally appropriate.

There are 81,767 confirmed and presumptive cases in Canada.
