In order to help curb the spread of the coronavirus, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is recommending that people wear cloth face coverings in places where social distancing is challenging (e.g., grocery stores).  The CDC provides a video from the Surgeon General on how to make non medical grade face coverings from household items. 

Face masks should also be worn correctly.  They should cover the nose to chin areas for instance, and be removed from back to front.  There are a variety of face masks from black owned brands.  These include masks with Ankara and other vivid prints, washable masks, cotton and polyester masks, and masks for children.  See the company and products links below for more information.
