The Centers from Disease Control says: "Cloth face coverings may slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others."

Here's the latest:

"CDC recommends that people wear cloth face coverings in public settings and when around people who don’t live in your household, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.

"Cloth face coverings may help prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus to others.

"Cloth face coverings are most likely to reduce the spread of COVID-19 when they are widely used by people in public settings.

"Cloth face coverings should NOT be worn by children under the age of 2 or anyone who has trouble breathing, is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance."
