How to Select, Wear, and Clean Your Mask  CDC 

Updated Aug. 27, 2020

 CDC recommends that you wear masks in   public settings around people who don’t live   in  your household and when you can’t stay 6   feet  away from others.

 Masks help stop the spread of COVID-19 to others.



  • Wear masks with two or more layers to stop the spread of COVID-19

  • Wear the mask over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin

  • Masks should be worn by people two years and older

  • Masks should NOT be worn by children younger than two, people who have trouble breathing, or people who cannot remove the mask without assistance

  • Do NOT wear masks intended for healthcare workers, for example, N95 respirators

  • CDC does not recommend the use of gaiters or face shields. Evaluation of these face covers is on-going but effectiveness is unknown at this time.
