Wearing Masks

Recently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated its guidance on wearing masks during COVID-19. Here are the top things you need to know:

  • A homemade mask or cloth face covering can prevent your germs from infecting others.
  • Wearing a homemade mask or cloth face covering does not protect you from others who may spread the virus and is not a substitute for social distancing.
  • Do not use medical-grade masks. These supplies are needed in health care facilities to protect health care workers.

Everyone has a role to play in getting ready and staying healthy.

Everyday preventive actions can help prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses:

  • Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough.

Contact your health care provider if you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop a fever and symptoms of respiratory illness, such as cough or difficulty breathing.
