The CDC now recommends everyone wear cloth masks while in public. Here are some do’s and don’ts to help keep you and your family safe.
– wear a mask when running essential errands
– practice social distancing, even with the mask on in public
– take the mask off by the ear elastic when you get home and wash it as soon possible
– wash your hands for 20 seconds after removing the mask and on a regular basis
– touch the mask without washing your hands
– play with the mask while wearing it
– take the mask off by grabbing the center fabric near your mouth and nose
– share masks with others in your household without washing them first
FACTS – Cloth masks are not 100% effective in blocking the spread of COVID-19 and are not a replacement for social distancing or washing hands. It is believed these masks may help individuals who have the virus but are not yet symptomatic from unintentionally spreading the virus. Please do not use N95 or surgical masks as there is a critical shortage of these items for our healthcare workers and first responders.
