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. See this webpage from the CDC with guidance on how to properly select, wear, and clean your mask – along with infographics. Wear a mask correctly and consistently for the best protection. Be sure to wash your hands before putting on a mask and do not touch the mask when wearing it. In addition, masks should be washed regularly. Always remove masks correctly and wash your hands after handling or touching a used mask.
