Why Cloth Face Coverings are Important

The universal use of cloth face coverings helps stop the spread of COVID-19. The state of Virginia requires anyone over the age of 10 to wear a face mask while inside a public building or business establishment. Face coverings help contain the wearer's respiratory droplets when she or he coughs, sneezes or even talks.
