Cloth face masks are recommended to reduce spread of COVID-19

To help slow the spread of COVID-19, the State of Nevada and the Center for Disease Control guidance was issued on wearing face masks and face coverings in public places. The cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical masks or N-95 respirators.  Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance.
