    Hey there! By now you've probably seen the CDC's new guidelines recommending people wear nonmedical face coverings in public.

    These guidelines are in place primarily to protect people around you from droplets you might expel through breathing, talking, or coughing; even people without symptoms may still be at risk of spreading the virus. The masks don't have to be anything fancy — the primary functions are that they are breathable, cover your nose and mouth, and are tight enough that they don't leave loose space for droplets to escape. Ideally, face coverings will also be multi-layered — and even *better*, could include a pocket for a filter. But any kind of face covering is better than not having one. You can check out BuzzFeed's guide to the CDC's new face covering recommendations, which include answers to all your burning mask questions as well as tutorials for how to make your own!
