To Stop the Spread of COVID-19:
Wear a Face Covering
How to Make a Face Covering:
How to Wear a Face Covering Correctly:
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.
- Try creating a cloth face covering using bandanas, ski masks, washable napkins, or dish towels.
Practice Good Hand Hygiene: Remember to wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds.
If you don’t have access to soap and water, use hand sanitizer frequently.
Don’t Touch Your Face:
Avoid touching your face, specifically your eyes, nose and mouth to prevent the spread of coronavirus and other germs.
Practice social distancing by putting space between yourself and others. Continue to practice healthy habits to help slow the spread of #COVID19.
