When someone who has coronavirus coughs, sneezes, or talks, virus particles can spray from their mouth or nose onto your face. But the droplets can also enter your body through your eyes. You can also become infected by touching your eyes after touching something that has the virus on it.

When both glasses and masks are required:

Make sure to pinch the top of the mask to fit the shape of your nose. If your mask allows it, tighten the sides as well for a good fit.

Wipe your lenses before wearing them. An anti-fogging solution or even gently washing your lenses with soap and water before wearing them may help.

Pushing your glasses forward on your nose will allow more air to circulate and keep your breath from fogging up your vision.

Rest your glasses over your face mask by pulling your mask up over your nose and rest your glasses on top of it. This will block the air from escaping and prevent fogging. Make sure your nose and mouth are still completely covered.

If you experience any of these symptoms, you should seek medical attention right away:
