Wearing masks will slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. www.cdc.gov/media/releases/2020/p0714-americans-to-wear-masks.html. This disease is spread through little drops from the mouth, nose and lungs, passed from an infected person to others. Cloth masks and non-surgical grade disposable masks help prevent the person wearing the mask from spreading COVID-19 to others. Slowing the spread will save lives and reduce the burden on our health care system. Wearing a mask is easy and the least restrictive way we can get back on track.
