Key Points to Keep in Mind

  • The risk of COVID-19 remains high. Follow infection control practices at all times. 
  • Everyone must continue to practice physical distancing of at least six feet apart and wear a clean cloth face covering that securely covers both your nose and mouth when around people outside of your household. More information on cloth face coverings.
  • Acceptable, reusable face covering options for the general public include: bandanas, neck gaiters, homemade face coverings, scarves, tightly woven fabric (such as cotton t-shirts and some types of towels).  

    three people wearing different types of cloth face coveringsThe CDC provides instructions on its website for how to make several types of homemade face coverings, including from a t-shirt and a bandana without any sewing required. A sampling of manufacturers selling face coverings is also available.

    • Face Coverings while exercising (e.g., walking, biking, jogging): It is suggested that a face covering be carried with you while exercising. Place the face covering over your nose and mouth while passing by others. 
    • Face Coverings for Children: Children under the age of 2 should NOT wear cloth face coverings. Those between the ages of 2-8 should use them under adult supervision to ensure that the child can breath safely and to avoid choking or suffocation. Children with breathing problems should not wear a face covering.
