Busting face mask myths: 4 myths about the use of face masks

At the start of 2020, we entered an era of social isolation unlike any other in recent history. People were forced to lockdown in their homes and countries, which challenged our very way of living.  Face masks, until then, were only used in countries with high pollution rate.

Just ask 1 News reporter Carolyn Robinson who went in search of good, sunny news for this year’s summer in New Zealand, but was instead greeted with predictions of a rainy and cloudy one.
