Maintaining 6-feet social distancing and frequent hand washing remains most important to slowing the spread of Cornavirus Disease. CDC (and our Canadian government for my fellow Canucks) is additionally advising the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus. You can use fabric face coverings as an additional, voluntary public health measure.
PLEASE NOTE: This face mask is NOT rated for disease control and not considered PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). For a direct link on this, visit the CDC website: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/diy-cloth-face-coverings.html Please research how to properly use and clean a fabric face mask before wearing it. Recommendations for using fabric face masks have been changing, so watch these via the CDC or your governments' website.
