Mandatory in Maryland: Wear Face Coverings
As of April 18th, 2020 it is now mandatory in the State of Maryland to wear a face covering when going to supermarkets, food retailers, or taking public transportation.
*Masks are required for adults and children over 9 years of age. It is not recommended to put masks on children under two years or anyone who cannot remove the mask themselves.
Cloth masks are easy to make with any old clothes, bandanas, scarfs, or fabric around the house. See below ↓ or the CDC website for a tutorial on how to make a no-sewing face mask.
What Makes A Good Face Mask?
Cloth face masks should:
·     fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
·     be secured with ties or ear loops
·     include multiple layers of fabric
·     allow for breathing without restriction
·     be washed with soap routinely after use
Also, remember to wash your hands after removing your face masks!
