Housefather: advice on wearing a mask

Over the last 7 days we have seen an average of 187 new cases of COVID-19 in Quebec per day. We have also seen an RT rate above 1.  Both of these are disturbing increases and this is also being replicated in other provinces.  While the Canadian numbers remain far better than in most other comparable jurisdictions we need to remain vigilant to avoid a new spike in cases.  I strongly encourage everyone to continue frequent hand washing, social distancing wherever possible and to wear masks in indoor public spaces.

Wearing a mask means wearing the mask over your mouth and nose. Recently I have been at a number of indoor locations where I have seen people wearing their mask without covering their nose and we need to point this out as not being the right way to wear a mask.
