COVID-19 spreads like the flu. If someone coughs or sneezes, it spreads the virus in little droplets and get inhaled by the next person. Therefore, it is important to wear a mask if you have any symptoms, so that you can prevent droplet spreading. Other ways to get the virus is to get it on your hands by touching someone, or someplace that has the virus on it, and then touching your face. Therefore, it is important to frequently wash your hands, avoid touching contaminated places and other people. Try to maintain a 6 foot distance from others to stay safer. If you are healthy, wearing a face mask will not prevent droplets from coming around the mask into your lungs.
