A cloth face covering should be worn whenever people must go into public settings. Please wear one when coming to the hospital, your doctor’s office, or other public places such as grocery stores or pharmacies.

In light of new data about how COVID-19 spreads, along with evidence of widespread COVID-19 illness in communities across the country, the CDC recommends that people wear a cloth face covering to cover their nose and mouth while in community settings.

This is an additional public health measure people should take to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in addition to (not instead of) social distancing, frequent hand cleaning and other everyday preventive actions. A cloth face covering is not intended to protect the wearer, but may prevent the spread of virus from the wearer to others. This would be especially important in the event that someone is infected but does not have symptoms.

It is not recommended that you wear medical masks and N-95 respirators which the CDC recommends should be reserved for healthcare workers and other first responders.
