As much as we’d all like the arrival of vaccinations to translate to the pandemic being over and a return to life “as normal,” verified medical supplies such as disposable face masks are still a necessary part of public interaction in the foreseeable future.
Besides it taking time for vaccines to collectively kick in, they do not provide 100% protection, and those that have been vaccinated may be asymptomatic spreaders of Covid-19. Therefore, it’s important to stay vigilant in our fight to control the spread – especially if we’re looking to protect those with compromised immune systems and those who can’t be vaccinated for a variety of reasons.
As of April 2021, The CDC remains steadfast in their guidance for wearing masks:
- When you wear a mask, you protect others as well as yourself.Masks work best when everyone wears one.
- A mask is NOT a substitute forsocial distancing. Masks should still be worn in addition to staying at least 6 feet apart, especially when indoors around people who don’t live in your household.
- Masks should completely cover the noseand mouth and fit snugly against the sides of face without gaps.
- Masks should be wornany time you are traveling on a plane, bus, train, or other form of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States and in U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and stations.
- People age 2 and older should wear masks in public settings and when around people who don’t live in their household.
- Wear a mask inside your home if someone you live with is sick withsymptoms of COVID-19 or has tested positive for COVID-19.
- Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or usehand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol after touching or removing your mask.
- Masks may not be necessary when you are outside by yourself away from others, or with people who live in your household. However, some areas may have mask mandates while out in public, so please check the rules in your local area (such as in your city, county, or state). Additionally, check whether any federal mask mandates apply to where you will be going.
- CDC continues to study the effectiveness of different types of masks and update our recommendations as new scientific evidence becomes available. The most recent scientific brief is available here:Scientific Brief: Community Use of Cloth Masks to Control the Spread of SARS-CoV-2 | CDC
- CDC recently conducted astudy in a laboratory that tested the performance of different mask combinations.
- There are several easy methods to improve the performance of your mask. Visit CDC’sImprove the Fit and Filtration of Your Mask to Reduce the Spread of COVID-19 webpage to learn more.
