Reduce your risk + protect others

Face Coverings

  • Wear a cloth face covering in public places where it's difficult to physically distance yourself from other people, including to the grocery store and pharmacy. 
    • A simple cloth face covering can slow the spread of the virus. Some people may spread COVID-19 to others even when they don't feel sick.
    • Do not use a facemask meant for a healthcare worker.
  • Learn to make a face covering with materials you already have at home.
