To protect yourself and others from COVID-19 when in large crowds and/or poorly ventilated indoor spaces, per CDC guidelines, APDA recommends everyone wear the most protective mask possible that fits well and will be worn consistently. Note: Because the population that we serve is more medically complex than the general population, our guidelines may be stricter than those enforced by your local health authorities.
