The CDC recommends that employees must wear facial protection, even if they do not feel sick. This is because several studies have found that people who are infected by COVID-19 who never show symptoms (asymptomatic) and those who are not yet displaying symptoms (pre-symptomatic) can still spread the virus to others. Wearing facial protection helps protect both you, and your employees, so we can all do our part to help stop the spread in the workplace.
COVID-19, and other diseases are spread through respiratory droplets, these can be spread through the air when people cough, sneeze, talk, shout, etc. Facial protection provides a barrier which helps to prevent the spread of respiratory droplets from person to person. Facial protection is especially important to wear in the workplace when social distancing (standing 6-ft apart) is not possible.
