The CDC has issued guidelines asking that everyone wear cloth face coverings when going out to places where they cannot guarantee maintaining appropriate distance (6ft), such as a pharmacy or grocery store.

(Illinois also now requires that everyone wear face coverings when going out places where they cannot maintain appropriate physical distance of 6 feet.)

They have also provided information on how to make yourself a cloth mask. See the video below.

Finally, there are right and wrong ways to use a mask. See this WikiHow article, co-authored by the World Health Organization, for information on how to put on and take off your mask.

For a cohesive overview of the new CDC guidelines, why they have changed, and how to use a mask correctly, please see this SciShow video from YouTube.
