FACILITY GUIDELINES

FACILITY GUIDELINES & FAQ

 

For help understanding how masks should fit, we follow these guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

  • Fit snugly against the sides of your face and don’t have gaps
  • Completely cover your nose and mouth
  • Have two or more layers of washable, breathable fabric 
  • Allow you to breathe without restriction 

Please do not wear masks that:

  • Have exhalation valves or vents because they allow virus particles to escape
  • Are made of fabric that makes it hard to breathe, for example, vinyl
  • Are intended for healthcare workers, including N95 respirators or surgical masks

If you wear a gaiter, please wear a gaiter with two layers or fold it to make two layers.

If you wear a face shield, please wear a mask as well. The CDC does not recommend using face shields as a substitute for masks and so they must be worn together in our facilities.
