(CNN)People who wear face masks to protect against disease typically don't neglect other steps that safeguard their health such as washing hands, according to a new study.
Some experts had worried that face coverings could create a false sense of security for wearers but a review of existing -- albeit limited -- evidence by researchers at the University of Cambridge and King's College London in the UK found that this doesn't appear to be the case.
"Many public health bodies are coming to the conclusion that wearing a face covering might help reduce the spread of SARS-CoV-2, and the limited evidence available suggests their use doesn't have a negative effect on hand hygiene," said co-author James Rubin, a reader in the psychology of emerging health risks at the King's College department of psychological medicine, in a press statement.
