Update April 6, 2020:
Over the weekend, the CDC came out with new guidance on steps that we can all take to stop the spread of the coronavirus: Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others.
It is now believed that there could be up to 25% of people infected with coronavirus who have no symptoms. And it also appears that people may be shedding the virus up to 48 hours before symptoms. If you are an unknowing carrier of the virus, wearing a cloth face covering will help stop the transmission of virus from you to others. If we all wear cloth face coverings, the chance of spread will be greatly reduced.
There are other benefits to wearing face coverings. A cloth face covering acts as a reminder to you, the wearer, to not touch your face directly without washing your hands thoroughly. It is also a reminder to people who see you wearing the face cover that it is essential we all keep our distance of at least 6 feet from each other during this pandemic.
Please know that wearing a cloth face covering is an additional tool we have to slow the spread of the virus. This does not replace the messages you have heard over and over again:
• Wash and/or sanitize your hands often
• Don’t touch your face
• Practice social distancing by staying at least 6 feet away from others
• Cover coughs and sneezes
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily
• (New) Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others
