Cloth face coverings are a critical preventive measure and are most essential in times when social distancing is difficult. Even if you are outside, you must wear a face covering if you cannot safely meet the social distancing guidelines of six (6) feet.
Wear a Mask to Protect You and Your Friends - For Young Adults
COVID-19 Order 31 - Effective May 6, 2020
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.
