The CDC recently changed its stance on face masks, and there is a lot of confusion resulting from the sudden move from recommending against them to recommending everyone to wear them. Watch this video to find out.
In the early stages of the coronavirus pandemic in the United States, the CDC advised against the use of face masks by the average person. They recently revised this position to reflect a variety of changing factors, including a better understanding of the number of asymptomatic carriers.
In the video below, Dr. Seema Yasmin explains the change, the benefits of wearing even a simple cloth mask, and why we still need to be very careful, exercise a good physical distance and wash our hands and masks frequently and carefully.
Here is a link to the CDC facial mask page she mentions in the video, where you can learn more about the CDC’s recommendations and see their tutorials on face masks to sew and not to sew.
