CDC Guidance for Personal Activities

Cloth Face Coverings

  • Wear cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, such as grocery stores, pharmacies, and gas stations.
  • Cloth face coverings may slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others.
  • Children under 2 should not wear a cloth face covering.
  • Wash your hands before putting on your face covering
  • Put it over your nose and mouth.
  • Take off your cloth face covering carefully, when you're home.
  • You can include your face covering with your regular laundry, using the warmest appropriate water setting.
  • After washing, use the highest heat setting and leave in the dryer until completely dry.
  • Or, lay flat and allow to completely dry. If possible, place the cloth face covering in direct sunlight.

The CDC gives these tips for wearing cloth face coverings..
