Los Angeles Dodgers Face Mask. Wearing a face mask is vital to slowing the spread of the novel coronavirus, along with other CDC guidelines such as maintaining 6 feet of social distance and washing your hands frequently.
Wearing face masks in public is firstly about social responsibility. Cloth face coverings mostly help protect other people from your germs, which is especially important because you could be asymptomatic or presymptomatic and not know that you’re carrying the virus. The exceptions to the masks-in-public rule are kids under the age of two and anyone who has trouble breathing or is otherwise unable to remove their mask without assistance.
“If everyone wears a mask when in public, the ones who have illness in them, whether symptomatic or not, will not contaminate the environment,” Chris Ziebell, an emergency medical director for US Acute Care Solutions, previously told Business Insider.
Since healthcare workers and COVID-19 patients are most in need of medical-grade surgical masks and N-95 masks, the CDC has encouraged the general public to wear cloth face masks instead.
“We’re getting to the point that we want everybody to wear masks when going outside, especially if they’re going to be in a setting that cannot be more than six feet apart from others,” Roberto Posada, MD, a pediatric infectious disease doctor at Mount Sinai previously said to INSIDER. “Ideally, [they should wear] a new mask each day or each time they have to go out,” Posada explained.
