Cloth face coverings are an important step to help slow the spread of COVID-19 when combined with other everyday preventive actions, including social distancing and frequent handwashing.
Research shows that wearing a mask can reduce infection rates by 80%. Correctly wearing a cloth face covering can help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Wear masks in public settings when around people not living in your household and particularly where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, such as grocery stores, pharmacies, and gas stations.
Children under the age of two, or anyone who has trouble breathing, is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance should not use cloth face coverings.
