In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Los Angeles has issued new guidance to L.A. residents on the importance of wearing face coverings in public.

A face covering is NOT the same thing as a mask. The recommendation from the City of LA is to use non medical face coverings made out of fabric, including bandanas or scarves.

Wearing a face covering is not a substitute for other critical measures to slow the spread of COVID-19 -- most importantly, staying home as much as possible, washing hands frequently, and practicing safe physical distancing in all settings.

N95 Masks
At this time, you should not be purchasing medical grade masks, which are in short supply. It is extremely important that N95 masks are reserved for those who need them most and have the highest risk of infection, including medical professionals and healthcare workers.
