COVID-19 Community Update and Helpful Resources

How to Select, Wear, and Clean Your Mask

CDC has updated its mask-wearing guidance. CDC recommends that you wear masks in public settings around people who don’t live in your household and when you can’t stay 6 feet away from others. Masks help stop the spread of COVID-19 to others.


  • Wear masks with two or more layers to stop the spread of COVID-19
  • Wear the mask over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin
  • Masks should be worn by people two years and older
  • Masks should NOT be worn by children younger than two, people who have trouble breathing, or people who cannot remove the mask without assistance
  • Do NOT wear masks intended for healthcare workers, for example, N95 respirators
How to Select
When selecting a mask, there are many choices. Here are some dos and don’ts.


How to Wear

Do wear a mask that:

  • Covers your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin
  • Fits snugly against the sides of your face 


How to Clean

Masks should be washed regularly. Always remove masks correctly and wash your hands after handling or touching a used mask.

  • Include your mask with your regular laundry
  • Use regular laundry detergent and the warmest appropriate water setting for the cloth used to make the mask 
  • Use the highest heat setting and leave in the dryer until completely dry
