The CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) especially in areas of significant community-based spread. These face coverings are to protect others. Unfortunately this virus does not have a play book. An individual can look and feel fine but still be a carrier of COVID-19. Because you can be asymptomatic and spread this virus, these face covering are an added layer of protection for you and me. The N-95 respirator masks are critical supplies that should be reserved for heatlhcare professionals and other first responders. If you have a bandana or scarf, those can work just as well. There are also YouTube videos that explain how to make no-sew face coverings. Click here for YouTube instructions.
 
Please note: Private businesses CAN require you to wear a mask or face covering at their locations. Remember the face coverings are to protect each other.
