SUAB HMONG NEWS (04/03/2020) – Friday, April 3rd, 2020, President Trump announced on his daily briefing on the coronavirus that the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) is recommending American to wear face covering while out in public. The face covering can be made of cloth.
“The CDC is advising the use of non-medical cloth face coverings as an additional voluntary public health measure,” Trump said. “So it’s voluntary. You don’t have to do it.”

“CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission,” the CDC said.
Fauci said the new guidelines do not aim to take away the availability of such supplies for frontline workers, who have been making public pleas for more personal protective equipment as governors scramble to secure supplies. He also said that wearing a face covering does not mean Americans should ignore the federal social distancing guidelines that people should stay six feet away from each other when out.
