The CDC recommends social distancing as well as wearing cloth face masks in public settings. These face masks should fit snug against the side of the face and be secured with either ear loops or ties. Multiple layers of fabric is preferred and the face mask should allow for unrestricted breathing and be able to be machine washed and dried. Masks should be washed regularly depending on the frequency of use. And as with any type of mask, they should be removed carefully without touching your eyes, nose or mouth and you should always wash your hands thoroughly before putting on a mask and again after removing a mask.
