Wearing cloth face coverings is an effective way to slow the spread of the virus that causes
COVID-19. The virus can easily spread from person to person through speaking, coughing,
sneezing - even in those that are exhibiting no symptoms. The primary transmission is
through respiratory droplets, and transmission typically occurs in the first seven days after
infection, even when people are asymptomatic. So that means that if you’re infectious, you
probably won’t know it. So we should all assume that we are potentially infectious to
people around us. Cloth face coverings create a simple barrier to help prevent respiratory
droplets from traveling into the air and onto other people when the person wearing the
cloth face covering coughs, sneezes, talks, or raises their voice.
