Mission requiring residents to cover their faces in public

 Citing a report from the Centers for Disease Control saying that the current and pervasive spread of the novel coronavirus can spread between people interacting in close proximity even if those people are not exhibiting symptoms, the city of Mission has mandated all citizens cover this faces in public settings effective immediately.

Medical grade masks are not required, according to a Sunday news release. The CDC recommends that people wear cloth or fabric face coverings, which can be made at home, or residents may use a scarf or handkerchief. The CDC recommends constructing your own cloth mask, so as to help ensure that doctors and nurses can obtain access to medical-grade surgical masks.
