New Face Mask Guidance
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated its advice about face masks.
New studies have found that two masks may be better than one.
- You can wear a cloth face mask over a paper, throw away mask.
- Or, you can make sure your paper mask fits very snugly around your face, under your chin, and around your nose.
- To do this, tie knots to shorten the elastic around your ears. Then tuck the folds of the mask under to make sure there are no openings around your face.
Remember, masks keep other people and you from virus breathed into the air. Keep yourself and those you love safe today! Double mask and make sure it fits snugly each time you leave your home.
