The CDC’s general guidance for stopping the spread of germs through sneezes or coughs:
- Use a tissue to cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze.
Still use a tissue, even if you’re wearing a mask as an extra protective layer outside the mask to prevent transmission.
• Carry extra masks with you in case the one you’re wearing gets soiled after you cough or sneeze into it. If you need to replace your mask or wipe your nose with a tissue, be sure that you are as isolated as possible from others. Masks aren’t fail-proof, especially if you’re not wearing it properly.
• Throw used tissues or soiled masks in the trash.
- Remember to immediately sanitize your hands or use bus sanitizing stations after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
