COVID-19 Preventative Measures - How to Select, Wear, and Clean Your Mask

 

COVID-19 continues to affect communities across the nation. The CDC recommends that you wear masks in public settings around people who don’t live in your household and when you can’t stay 6 feet away from others. Masks help stop the spread of COVID-19 to others. 

 

The CDC recommends the following guidelines when selecting, wearing and caring for your mask:

  • Wear masks with two or more layers to stop the spread of COVID-19
  • Wear the mask over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin
  • CDC does not recommend the use of gaiters or face shields, their effectiveness is unknown at this time
  • Masks should be washed regularly
  • Mask can be included with your regular laundry
  • Allow mask to completely dry before reusing
