NH's Epidemiologist and CDC: Wear Cloth Face Covering in Public

Melania Trump urges Americans to wear face coverings take social distancing 'seriously'

Melania Trump urges Americans to wear face coverings take social distancing 'seriously'

If washing by hand, use warm soapy water.

The CDC on Friday recommended that Americans wear non-medical cloth masks - but Trump emphasized it wasn't a mandate.

"We still need to say six feet away from people when you're out in public, washing your hands coughing into or sneezing into the crook of your arm". Or, you could just wash with soap and iron it for 5 minutes - Keep the mask in a clean, safe place like a thoroughly washed plastic bag. "It's just an added protection".

Chef wear company Hedley & Bennett has retooled its factory in Vernon, California, to produce masks it designed in tandem with a pediatric orthopedic surgeon.

Late Friday afternoon, April 4, the CDC pivoted. That could be a person who is sick but showing no symptoms, or even a person who has been infected but not yet fallen ill.

The CDC stresses this new recommendation does not mean everyone should wear surgical masks or N-95 masks, as these are reserved for healthcare workers and other first responders.

N95 masks and other personal protective equipment are pictured at the Summit Community Care Clinic in Frisco on Monday, March 30.

You can also use a scarf, bandana, or another piece of fabric if you do not have a cloth mask. Several sites are offering free patterns (like Craft Passion) or tutorials that demonstrate "how to", step by step.

President Trump was also asked if his coronavirus task force should wear face masks during the briefings to set an example to the rest of the nation.

The new USA federal guidance was announced by President Trump during last Friday's White House press briefing.

Jersey's medical officer of health, Dr Ivan Muscat, said that although there is limited direct data on the use of cloth masks for Covid-19, there is "good supportive evidence from other infections and good theoretical reasons to believe they will be helpful".

In a statement, public health says, "we are evaluating both CDC and California Department of Health recommendations, and will provide any changes to our recommendation this week". "But no, I mean, again, I would wear one if I thought it was important", the president said, acknowledging that many people were wearing masks and signaling that he would support members of the task force if they chose to wear masks.

"I don't think I'm going to be doing it".

"Yes, if you have access to a regular ordinary surgical mask that would be more sufficient", said Heber. "They should strongly consider it and it certainly won't cause any harm".

"She feels that way", Trump said. As a reminder, people should not touch their eyes, nose, or mouth when removing the face mask and need to wash their hands immediately after removing it. She said those filters are known to filter out very small particulate matter. We show you three ways you can make your own mask. Countries such as the Czech Republic, Austria and some parts of Germany have already recommended their use. Likewise, if you have a high risk of getting seriously ill from COVID-19 - meaning you are 65 or older and/or have other underlying health conditions -stay home.
