What kind of mask should you wear while flying during COVID-19?

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends the following:

  • People 60 years or over or those who have serious chronic illnesses or underlying health conditions should wear a medical mask when traveling. Medical masks provide greater protection from others who may have the virus.
  • People who are healthy and have no symptoms can wear a fabric mask to prevent the virus from spreading to others.
