WEARING A CLOTH MASK
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released updated guidelines on April 3, advising Americans to wear cloth face coverings when out in the community. The guidelines target areas with significant community spread and where social distancing is difficult (like a grocery store). The goal is to minimize the spread from asymptomatic people (who have the COVID-19 illness but show no symptoms) and pre-symptomatic people (who are infected but aren’t showing symptoms yet).
- Use a fabric mask for no more than four hours at a time, then wash in hot water and dry thoroughly before using it again.
- Put the mask on (don) after washing hands for 20 seconds with soap and water.
- Wash hands again after removing (doffing) the mask. Do not touch the outside front part of the mask as the area is likely to be contaminated.
- You must still practice social distancing and handwashing if you wear a mask. Masks are not absolutely effective and do not allow you to be less vigilant about staying safe!
Cloth masks are not medical-grade N95 respirators. Medical experts believe they may help to prevent an asymptomatic carrier from unknowingly spreading the virus to others. (Sacramento Bee April 2020)
