How can we convince others to wear a mask? Here are six tips I need you to share with… your community. You’re a science communicator now. If you think about wearing a mask like other behaviours and actions related to our health – wearing seatbelts, condoms, sunscreen and more – we can look at things that did (and didn’t work) in public health campaigns in the past. I hope you like my PSA.
