A homemade mask or cloth face covering can prevent your germs from infecting others.
Wearing a homemade mask or cloth face covering does not protect you from others who may spread the virus and is not a substitute for social distancing.
Do not use medical-grade masks. These supplies are needed in health care facilities to protect health care workers.
Disposable masks should be placed in the trash after use.
Watch For Symptoms
Symptoms of COVID-19 can include fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, headache, muscle pain, sore throat, or loss of taste or smell. Not everyone with COVID-19 has all of these symptoms, and some people may not have any symptoms.
