Protect others around you
Viruses, bacteria, and other germs are primarily transmitted between people through droplets, aerosols, and contact routes.
Analysis supported by Nobel Prize winner and virologist Harold Varmus tells us placing a layer of cloth in front of a person's face can stop the majority of speech-generated droplets and reduce the risk of spreading germs by speaking, sneezing or coughing.
Doing the right thing is now more important than ever. Let’s look out for each other, as WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER.
Preserve critical supplies
Surgical masks and N-95 respirators currently count as critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by the current Centers for Disease Control guidance. A US government survey found the most common equipment shortages recently were for surgical masks, other personal protective equipment, and ventilators. The shortages were so severe that some hospitals were experimenting with non-medical-grade gear such as construction respirators, cloth masks, and handmade gowns. GoodGuise® facemasks are non-surgical masks, let's leave those for the safety of our healthcare workers.
