News & Information from the City of Sugar Land
A message from Dr. Joe Anzaldua, City of Sugar Land Health Authority
The Centers for Disease Control now recommends that everyone wear a cloth facemask when out in public areas to protect others in case they are unknowingly carrying coronavirus.
A summary of the CDC’s recommendation follows:
- Cover your mouth and nose with a CLOTH face cover when around other people such as going to the grocery store or other essential activities.
- The CLOTH face cover is meant to protect OTHER people in case you are infected.
- Do NOT use a medical or surgical facemask intended for healthcare personnel, such as first-responders, doctors, nurses and other medical office or hospital staff.
- CLOTH face coverings should NOT be placed on:
- children under the age of two; or
- anyone who has difficulty breathing, unconscious or incapacitated as they may not be able to remove the face cover without assistance.
And remember…the CLOTH face cover is NOT intended to replace social distancing. Please continue to keep about 6 feet distance between yourself and others. For more details, please visit the www.cdc.gov.City updates and information at www.sugarlandtx.gov/Coronavirus
