继Sonoma County、Los Angeles、New York State、Fremont等之后,4月17日旧金山市长London Breed也宣布了该市市民在公共场合需要佩戴面罩。

无论你乘坐公交、购物、搞建筑、排队、从事任何必需的作业(Essential Business),或任何与人有近距离接触的地方,你都需要佩戴面罩。

这个新的要求不是取代居家隔离令和保持社交距离,而是为了安全的一个重要步骤。

Face coverings should cover the nose and mouth and fit securely. They can be a manufactured or homemade mask, a bandanna, scarf, towel, neck gaiter or similar item. Cloth face coverings should be cleaned frequently with soap and water.

Face coverings do not need to be N-95 or surgical masks to help prevent the spread of the virus to others. Please refrain from buying hospital-grade masks so that those are available for health care workers and first responders.

面罩需要遮住鼻子和嘴,而且要很贴合。可以是制造的或手工制作的口罩,头巾、围巾等都可以。布质的面罩需要用水和肥皂经常清洗。请不要购买医用级别的口罩,把它们尽量留给医护和一线工作人员。

目前除了旧金山,Alameda、 Contra Costa、Marin、San Mateo都出台了相关要求,在公共场合佩戴面罩是必需的。Santa Clara和Santa Cruz县都还没有做出强制要求,但是期望人们都自觉地执行佩戴面罩的建议。 



Children 12 years old or younger. Children age 2 and under must not wear a face covering due to the risk of suffocation. Children age 3 to 12 are not required to wear a face covering, but if they do, they should be supervised by an adult.

不过请注意,12岁及以下的儿童不需要佩戴面罩。2岁及以下的儿童不能戴,由于有窒息的风险。3-12岁的不做要求,如果要戴,务必有大人监管。
