CDC does not have updated guidance scheduled to come out on this topic. See current CDC guidance regarding the use of facemasks:
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a virus (more specifically, a coronavirus) identified as the cause of an outbreak of respiratory illness first detected in Wuhan, China.

You don't understand how small the virus actually is. This is dangerous to imply this method is effective.

That's cool. Are you going update the national coronavirus infection numbers on your website more than three times a week... or nah?

Or how about provide a database which provides infection numbers by county? That could be helpful. It's sort of weird that Wunderground has managed to do this... but not the CDC.

why did you say this? There’s lots of people on the CDC team who are very responsive and you could have talked to before pushing this tweet. Letting the public think this is coming may further exacerbate supply chain concerns through public purchase of masks.

W have demand modeling. Stuff gets held up in warehouses and in shipping, we have enough masks but they're not moving to the right areas fast enough.

Too little too late. Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Japan have so far managed to keep the spread relatively low, despite the high population density and heavy reliance on crowded public transit -- because wearing of masks was already part of their cultures.

But we don't have masks - not even for healthcare workers.

The rest of the world is wearing them but we aren’t because the CDC was ineffective in sounding the alarm. There are enough seamstresses to make masks but easier to control the masses by confusion and abject neglect.

I believe the aim was to avoid mass mask hoarding and commercial opportunism in hope of preserving supply for hospitals
