The universal use of cloth face coverings helps stop the spread of COVID-19. The Center for Disease Control strongly recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public places, particularly where it might not be possible to maintain at leat 6 feet of physical distance from others. Face coverings help contain the wearer's respiratory droplets when she or he coughs, sneezes or even talks. The Governor of Virginia's "Safer at Home - Phase One" plan calls on all employees and customers to utilize face coverings.
The CDC advises:
- Wear a face covering to protect others from the virus that causes COVID-19 in case you're affected but don't have symptoms
- Keep the covering on your face for the entire time you are in public
- Don't put the covering around your neck or up on your forehead
Wear a face covering to protect others.
