CDC Recommends Use of Face Coverings or Masks in Public

Safety Tips

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) now recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies). CDC also advises the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others. 

While staying home, social distancing, and strict hand hygiene are still preferred methods for preventing further spread of COVID-19, facemasks are one more tool that may be used by the general public and essential workers to protect each other from respiratory droplets produced when we cough, sneeze, or talk. 

Please note that surgical masks and N95 respirators are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders. Instead, you can make your own face covering/mask or support a Northbrook business by purchasing one. Non-surgical masks are being sold at:

Lisa’s Boutique - Orders can be placed for adult-sized cloth face covers ($8 and comes in assorted patterns) for curbside pickup (4173 Dundee Road at Sanders Crossing) or delivery ($6 shipping fee).
