April 5, 2020 Update—Last week, the CDC revised its position on the use of face masks for the general public. Everyone must absolutely continue to follow the CDC’s recommendations on social distancing, washing hands, wiping down surfaces, etc. However, in addition, the CDC now recommends using cloth face masks when out in public. Do not buy N95 masks or other medical supplies needed by hospitals and health care providers—but do make your own face covering to slow the spread of COVID-19.
