As of the 5th of April 2020, the US has the highest number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the world at 308,850; 8,407 people have died from the pandemic.

"We now know from recent studies that a significant portion of individuals with coronavirus lack symptoms ('asymptomatic') and that even those who eventually develop symptoms ('pre-symptomatic') can transmit the virus to others before showing symptoms", says the CDC.

If someone in the home has COVID-19 symptoms. It is imperative that people continue to perform social distancing, use hand hygiene, avoid touching their face, and environmental disinfection measures.

The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for one has published some useful suggestions on its website so that people can make their own masks at home, and have added numerous guidelines to aid in their use. If you go out in public, stay 6 feet away from others as much as possible.

"Handwashing and social distancing are still our most effective, proven strategies to limit the spread of disease in our community", according to the post. It is not a substitute for them.

Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.

"Wearing a mask by the average Trinidadian and Tobagonian is of absolutely no use, as a matter of fact, it is more risky because the average person who does not know how to put on a mask, or who puts on an ill-fitting mask is going to be adjusting and touching their face", he said at a press conference on March 4.

These cloth face coverings that are being recommended are, they point out, not surgical masks or N-95 respirators, which are critical for healthcare workers and other medical first responders. And there is scientific data to show that when you aerosolized virus through a cloth barrier, you have a reduction in the amount of virus that gets through the other side.

Wash your hands immediately after removing the mask. Every member in a family needs a separate one CLEAN YOUR MASK EVERY DAY- Thoroughly wash the mask in soap and warm water and leave it to dry in the sun for 5 hours - If there is no sunlight, boil it in hot water (for 15 min) or in a pressure cooker (for 10 min) and leave it to dry. Throw away any cloth face covering that no longer covers your mouth and nose, can not stay on your face, or has holes.

What Kind of Cloth Face Covering Should I Wear?

Non-medical cloth face coverings are pieces of fabric that cover the nose and mouth and can be made at home.

- Make cloth face coverings from household items or common materials. See this video from the CDC to learn how.

State epidemiologist Dr. Benjamin Chan told WMUR on Saturday that he suggests using a homemade mask or cloth-based covering.

This guidance is for cloth face coverings only.
