August 18, 2020 – APNL Press Release:
Psychological Strategies for Wearing Masks
The NL government recently announced the mandatory wearing of masks in all public spaces for individuals over the age of 5. While some individuals have been routinely wearing masks for many months, either as part of their work, or while running errands, for many this will be a new, and somewhat uncomfortable situation. Fortunately, Psychologists can help! Becoming accustomed to wearing a mask is just like making any other kind of behavioural change.
