COVID-19 Order 31 - Effective May 6, 2020

Face Mask Instructions

Your cloth face covering should:

✔️ Reach above the nose, below the chin, and completely cover the mouth and nostrils

✔️ Fit snugly against the sides of the face

✔️ Be made of multiple layers of fabric that you can still breathe through

✔️ Be able to be laundered and machine dried without damaging the material or shape

Do not buy surgical masks to use as a face covering. Those are intended for healthcare workers and first responders. Many items you may already have in your home can be used to create face coverings.

How to Make a Cloth Face Covering. Try creating a cloth face covering using bandannas, ski masks, washable napkins, or dish towels.
