Face Masks and Gaiters

To help slow or prevent the spread of COVID-19, the CDC recommends wearing cloth face masks in public when social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. These face masks are made with runners in mind.

Face masks with elastic ear loops help hold the covering up to your face for a more secure fit, and soft fabrics make them more comfortable to wear. Shop face masks at Fleet Feet, and stay safe when you head out of the house.

About Face Masks Use

In combination with social distancing, the Centers for Disease Control recommends wearing face masks when it might be hard to stay six feet apart, like at the grocery store. The mask helps protect other people in case you have the virus but don’t have symptoms.

The CDC says cloth face masks or other coverings help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by stopping respiratory droplets that contain the virus from entering the air when you exhale.

The CDC recommends anyone older than 2 years of age wear a face mask when in a public setting where distancing is difficult. Although, CDC recommendations make an exception for children younger than 2 years old and anyone who has difficulty breathing.

How to Wear a Face Mask

To ensure the health and safety of yourself and others, the CDC recommends a short checklist for wearing a mask properly:

  • Wash your hands before putting on your face covering
  • Put it over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin
  • Try to fit it snugly against the sides of your face
  • Make sure you can breathe easily
