When asked about the national statement, B.C.’s Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry, clarified that use of non-medical masks by the public is “not a recommendation – it is a permissive use.”
“For short-term, [wearing non-medical masks] can protect others around you from your droplets … it’s not going to protect you from getting infected with this virus,” Dr. Henry said.
“I think we have to be very careful not to say that it is required or recommended for everybody, but it is an option particularly if you are not sure you’re going to be able to cover your cough if you need to.”
