The CDC has recommended the use of facial coverings when out in public. COVID-19 can be spread by people who do not have symptoms and do not know that they are infected. This would make many people have a high risk of getting COVID-19. That’s why it’s important for everyone to practice social distancing and wear masks in public settings according to the CDC. People who are most vulnerable to COVID-19 are the elderly and people with certain conditions such as cancer, type 2 diabetes, chronic kidney disease, sickle cell disease, and serious heart conditions.

Please note: The cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical masks or N-95 respirators. Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance.

Caution: If a family member tests positive for COVID-19, they should be separated from everyone else as much as possible. Also, you shouldn't welcome anyone to your home, wash your hands more frequently, and everyone must avoid touching their nose, eyes, and mouth.
