CDC Recommends People Wear Cloth Masks in Certain Public Areas

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is now recommending that people should wear cloth face masks in public areas where social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., in grocery stores and pharmacies) and where significant community-based transmission of the coronavirus is occurring. The CDC is basing its recommendation on results from recent studies that show the coronavirus can be spread between people interacting in close proximity to one another even if those people are not exhibiting symptoms.
