To try to mitigate the spread of coronavirus, the UK may be asked to start wearing masks when we’re out in public. This has been requested, and in some cases even required, by many countries around the world. 

Naturally, this will be something that you will have to consider when you’re thinking about how your organisation will adapt to the new normal that comes on the other side of COVID-19. 

This free guide from our partner, Citation, explores the implications and considerations of staff wearing facemasks in the workplace.


It offers expert guidance on how to decide what facemasks to use, whether you can make someone wear a facemask, how to make sure facemasks fit, plus other key questions employers should ask themselves.

This guide is the second in a series put together to help businesses and their people return to work safely and protect their futures. The first guide looked at social distancing in the workplace and can be accessed for free by clicking here.
