Facemasks – What should you do if you have Asthma?

Should I wear a face mask or face covering?

The governments of all UK nations are now recommending that people wear a face covering in enclosed spaces, where:

  • social distancing may not be possible
  • you may come into contact with people you don’t normally meet.

Examples of where this could happen are public transport and shops. In some areas of the UK, it is now mandatory to wear face coverings in certain environments. In England, Northern Ireland and Scotland, it’s now mandatory to wear a face covering on public transport. In Wales, it will be mandatory to wear them on public transport from 27 July.
