As expected, the CDC has updated its guidelines about using a face-covering in public:
- Wear cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
- This is NOT a substitute for social distance measures such as maintaining 6 feet distance from others in public and frequent hand washing.
- Simple cloth face coverings slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others.
- Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.
Instructions for making low-cost face masks from household materials are on the sheet attached. For more information and FAQs, visit the CDC website.
