Centers for Disease Control on How to Use Face Coverings to Protect Others

The Centers for Disease Control recommends that cloth face coverings are an additional step to help slow the spread of COVID-19 when combined with every day preventive actions and social distancing in public settings.

  • Wear a face covering to help protect others in case you’re infected but don’t have symptoms.
  • Wear the covering in public settings when around people outside of your household, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
  • Don’t put the covering around your neck or up on your forehead.
  • Don’t touch the face covering, and, if you do, wash your hands.
Follow Everyday Health Habits
  • Stay at least 6 feet away from others.
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds each time.
  • Use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
Take Off Your Cloth Face Covering Carefully, When You’re Home
  • Untie the strings behind your head or stretch the ear loops.
  • Handle only by the ear loops or ties.
  • Fold outside corners together.
  • Place covering in the washing machine.
  • Be careful not to touch your eyes, nose and mouth when removing and wash hands immediately after removing.

Accessibility Statement

Disability Network Northern Michigan is committed to making its website accessible to the widest possible audience. This website has been developed to comply under Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, which was enacted to eliminate barriers to information technology, to make available new opportunities for people with disabilities and to encourage the development of new technologies to help achieve these goals. This law requires that all individuals with disabilities have access to information and data comparable to that which is available to individuals without disabilities.

DisabilityNetwork.org is regularly monitored to ensure that it meets the requirements of Section 508, along with the best practices outlined by the W3C’s (World Wide Web Consortium’s) Web Accessibility Initiative, specifically WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) Level A Compliance. We are diligently working to reach and maintain a higher standard of accessibility, which is Level AA Compliance of W3C’s WCAG standards. Because technology changes rapidly, this is an ongoing process.
