Related to masks, how does the CDC recommend I protect myself to reduce my risk for getting COVID-19? The CDC DC recommends that people wear masks in public settings, at events and gatherings, and anywhere they will be around other people. Please review the following recommendation:
Cover your mouth and nose with a mask when around others
- You could spread COVID-19 to others even if you do not feel sick.
- The mask is meant to protect other people in case you are infected.
- Everyone should wear a mask in public settings and when around people who don’t live in your household, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
- Masks 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.
- Do NOT use a mask meant for a healthcare worker. Currently, surgical masks and N95 respirators are critical supplies that should be reserved for healthcare workers and other first responders.
- Continue to keep about 6 feet between yourself and others. The mask is not a substitute for social distancing.
- Always cover your mouth and nosewith a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow and do not spit.
- Throw used tissuesin the trash.
- Immediatelywash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
- Reference the CDCs Guide to Masks and other CDC COVID-19 guidelines for additional information.
What is the mask donation? As part of this effort, the American Heart Association is proud to donate 500 masks to Feeding America to allow frontline hunger relief workers to stay safe and serve safely during the COVID 19 pandemic.
The American Heart Association and Feeding America both serve communities with overlapping disparities and higher risks. Many of these communities are at higher risk for cardiac arrest and have lower rates of bystander CPR participation. CPR increases a person’s chance of survival. The masks remind people to learn CPR to be better prepared to act in an emergency within their community.
