The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings such as grocery stores, pharmacies, and places where social distancing is difficult to maintain. The cloth face covering should fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face, be secured with ties or ear loops, include multiple layers of fabric, allow for breathing without restriction, and be able to be washed and machine dried without damage or change to shape.
