How to make a cloth face covering

COVID-19 has been shown to spread between people interacting in close-proximity even when those people aren’t showing symptoms. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has adjusted its recommendations to recommend wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.
