Use a cloth face covering in public to reduce the spread of COVID-19

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.
