The Ministry of Health says the best way to stop it is still washing your hands regularly.
"You might feel safer wearing a mask, and you can do that if you want to, but COVID-19 isn't airborne. It's spread by droplets, which means you're most likely to catch it by touching something with a droplet on it (and then touching your face). If you choose to wear a mask or gloves, you still need to wash your hands carefully and often."
The people who need protective equipment are those working with confirmed and suspected cases of COVID-19, the ministry said. You can find information on protective gear, including how and when to use it, on health.govt.nz/covid-19 |the Ministry of Health website|.
