The CDC is the US authority on protocols and protections against COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus.
In the CDC's words, it "recommends👉 wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission." (The emphasis is the CDC's.)
The institute says not to seek out medical or surgical-grade masks for yourself and to leave N95 respirator masks to health care workers, opting instead for basic cloth or fabric coverings that can be washed and reused. Previously, the agency considered homemade face masks a last resort in hospitals and medical facilities.
The product curators behind the New York City based brand Mojiflo assembled a collection of 👉 Custom Printed Masks in an effort to make a rather dire situation a bit more appealing.
