In order to reduce the spread of COVID-19, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and many state and local governments recommend wearing a face mask or face covering in public places and around people who do not live in the same household, in addition to other prevention measures such as handwashing and social distancing. Some disabilities make it difficult or impossible to wear a face mask and some individuals with mobility/movement disorders have difficulty putting on, adjusting, and/or removing a face mask without assistance.
This webinar outlines CDC’s face mask guidelines and explores solutions to challenges some people with disabilities experience in attempting to follow the guidance. Participants will receive tips, resources, and guidance for wearing face masks to protect themselves from COVID-19.
