As recommended by the Centers of Disease Control (CDC), we are requiring all patients and visitors to wear a face mask or face covering of some sort when visiting our offices. Wearing a simple cloth face covering can help slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting to others. Common face coverings and materials you can use include:
- Homemade cloth face covering made out of a t-shirt, cotton cloth or other breathable material
- Tied t-shirt covering your nose and mouth

How to wear a cloth face covering:
Cloth face coverings should fit snugly and comfortably against the side of the face and secured with ties or around the ears. They should include multiple layers of fabric and allow breathing without restriction. These cloth face coverings should be laundered and dried after every use.
How to safely remove a used cloth face covering
Wash your hands prior to removing. Be careful not to touch your eyes, nose or mouth when removing your face covering and wash hands immediately after.
