Cloth face coverings recommended

Social distancing is still the most important thing we can do to protect our health and prevent the spread of COVID-19.

However, the Washington State Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) now recommend people wear cloth face coverings when they are in public places and cannot stay at least 6 feet away from others.

Wearing cloth face coverings will not prevent the spread of COVID-19 without use of other protective measures. It is critical to stay home whenever possible, wash hands often, and disinfect frequently used objects.
