Guidelines on Homemade Cloth Face Masks
Are you wondering if homemade cloth face masks are a good idea? The CDC recommends that homemade cloth masks—when combined with good hand hygiene and social distancing—can help slow the spread of COVID-19 in a community. Masks can limit the spread of germs from the mask wearer to others by helping block large droplets from coughs and sneezes. (See “Recommendation Regarding the Use of Cloth Face Coverings, Especially in Areas of Significant Community-Based Transmission.”)
