Face Mask Recommendations

CDC recommends that people wear a face covering to cover their nose and mouth in the community setting.

This is an additional public health measure people should take to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in addition to (not instead of) social distancing, frequent hand cleaning and other everyday preventive actions.

Face masks should NOT be put on babies or children younger than 2 because of the danger of suffocation.
