The Department of Defense urges individuals on DOD property, installations and facilities to wear cloth face coverings when a 6-foot social distance cannot be maintained to help prevent the spread of COVID-19," Navy Cmdr. (Dr.) Cameron J.L. Nelson, chief of DHA's occupational medicine branch, said, noting that this complies with guidance disseminated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
"This guidance is especially important for families and others who may need to go out in public to perform essential tasks, such as food shopping," he added.
The face-covering mask can be fashioned from simple household items such as a clean T-shirt or cloth, as demonstrated in CDC's do-it-yourself guide.
Because surgical face masks and other personal protective equipment are in short supply in the health care arena across the United States, the CDC advises that homemade cloth face coverings should:
  • Fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face;
  • Be secured with ties or ear loops;
  • Include multiple layers of fabric;
  • Allow for breathing without restriction; and
  • Be able to be laundered and machine dried without damage or change to the shape.
CDC officials say cloth face coverings are especially critical in areas of significant community-based transmission.
Using a simple cloth face covering not only can slow the spread of COVID-19, but also can help those who could unknowingly have the virus from spreading it to others, the CDC said.
Cloth face coverings should not be placed on children younger than age 2, on anyone who has trouble breathing or who is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance, the CDC advises.
Cloth face coverings should be washed routinely in a washing machine, CDC authorities said.
When removing a used face cloth covering, the CDC says people should use caution and not touch their eyes, nose or mouth, and immediately wash their hands after taking the covering off.
The CDC emphasizes that its recommendation on face cloth coverings complements, and does not replace, the President's Coronavirus Guidelines for America, 30 Days to Slow the Spread, which remains the cornerstone of the national effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
CDC officials will make additional recommendations as the evidence for appropriate public-health measures continues to develop.
"Everyone must do their part to protect themselves and their families," Nelson said.

This is a great primer from the US Department of Defense, thanks vitico!

Could I impose upon you to reformat it just a little so that it looks better here in the forum, and add anything you've noticed or tips and hints for face coverings that you've found in addition to this?

Picture, cant share any of the government websites you must be a veteran and have the clearance

I read one article that states the virus in know to be able and can come from animals ,dogs ,cats and bats , I dont believe that at all , i have my own plan and why ,like i said it was made in a lab , the word is to keep it shut this might start an end of the world war.
If said China made it then the world and different countries will go to war with them also terrorist this would start a big issue for economy it would be the end of all

If they dont get a hold of this soon by Sept we will have 6 to 8 or 9 million infected and 3 or 4 million dead
at the rate of a 3 day double or triple the infected rate. by December we will have 30 to 50 million infected and
30 million dead.
January will have 1200 to 3000 million infected and 2000 to 3500 million dead in the world , this is way worse than what they say or think , if one person stay infected it does not matter it will continue over and over ,they have to kill this virus 120 percent a fix is not the answer

To be eminently clear, there is no evidence to date that has indicated the virus was created in a lab or part of an intentional effort. Novel viruses have been with us a long time, and our bodies have simply not developed natural immunities to them. Our own reporters have written much on the subject, and I encourage everyone to read-up in order to stop the spread of dangerous misinformation:

We can and should do our level best to contain the virus, practice safety and social distancing, and work to keep everyone as safe as we can. There are no models that expect the level of casualties as you present, however, at 2.5% fatality rate, even the worst case scenarios don't reach that level of nightmare outcome. That said, this is deadly serious, and important we all do our part.
