MDH Update on Face Coverings

Recently MDH updated their guidance on Face Coverings. Here is a reminder on the face covering guidance, including the updates. The main update is the recommendation that all face coverings should be two layers of fabric. Single-layer fabric, usually found in certain types of scarves, neck gaiters or bandannas, may not be as effective.
Types of allowable face coverings include:
  • paper or disposable mask
  • cloth face mask
  • neck gaiter
  • scarf
  • bandanna
  • religious face covering 
Face coverings should cover the nose and mouth completely, not be overly tight/restrictive, and feel comfortable. Face coverings are not meant to substitute for social distancing.
