CDC urges Americans to wear protective masks

CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky reiterated that on Monday people should wear protective masks to reduce their chances of contracting a respiratory illness such as COVID-19 or the flu.

"We also encourage you to wear a high-quality, well-fitting mask to prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses," Dr. Walensky told reporters during a call, stressing that Americans who live in areas widely affected by the spread of the coronavirus should especially consider wearing the masks.

The CDC director also urged those who haven't yet requested COVID-19 or flu vaccines to do so as soon as eligible.
