is mainly spread through droplets that come from an infected person’s nose and
mouth, for example when they cough, sneeze or talk. It can also be spread via
airborne transmission where the virus can travel longer distances that droplets
(for example across a room) in very tiny water particles, known as aerosols.
face covering that covers your mouth and nose reduces the spread of these
droplets and aerosols. It also helps stop the spread of the virus from people
who may not know they have it.
We ask that every member of the MTU
community and visitors to our university take personal responsibility for their
own health and that of our entire community. The wearing of face coverings
is mandatory on campus at all times whilst indoors, unless the individual
is the sole occupant of the room or area.
Please note that a face
visor is not a substitute for a face covering. They are not designed as respiratory protective
equipment and are not the best option for protecting yourself and others from
COVID-19. They should only be worn if you have an illness or impairment that
makes wearing a face covering difficult.
