With the recent spike in cases of the novel coronavirus disease, some Filipinos agreed with the call to wear face masks at home.
A Twitter user shared he was practicing the safety measure “prior to the pandemic.”
He wrote, “This makes sense if you are exposed doing ESSENTIAL things outside your residence and you want to protect your co-residents especially those with comorbidities. It’s not rocket science. It’s common sense.”
The safety measure can also be found on the website of the United States’ Centers for Disease Control Prevention.
It reads: “Wear a mask inside your home if someone you live with is sick with symptoms of COVID-19 or has tested positive for COVID-19.”
The CDC advises one should wear a face mask when you are around people who do not live with you, plus inside your home if someone you live with is sick with symptoms of the novel coronavirus disease or has tested positive for COVID-19.
