This thing is just as funny as it is scary and many are not sure whether to laugh or be scared for their lives. In the photo, 18 specific facial hairstyles that are not good to have at this moment and it includes these styles, "mutton chops, fu manchu, english, imperial, van dyke, circle beard, goatee, extended goatee, stubble, long stubble, full beard, french fork, ducktail, and verdi. There are a few others but we have not heard of them.

The CDC says the point of the graphic is to explain to the public that facial hair can interfere with potentially life-saving respirators on a person's face. In other words, you need it to fit flush against your face. So, in the picture, the one which will give you the best shot at not getting it is "clean-shaven."

In its explanation, the CDC says facial hair can also get in the way of the respirator's exhalation valve, making it ineffective.

According to reports, the cartoon was actually created in 2107 to use as a teaching took for how to properly wear safety masks, but the fact that it is sharing it in connection to Coronavirus is just scary.

This comes on the eve of the CDC announcing the first American has died of Coronavirus that did NOT travel abroad.

“At this time, the patient’s exposure is unknown,” the CDC said in a statement.

The continued, “It’s possible this could be an instance of community spread of COVID-19, which would be the first time this has happened in the United States. Community spread means the spread of an illness for which the source of infection is unknown. It’s also possible, however, that the patient may have been exposed to a returned traveler who was infected.”

This brings the total to 15 people in the U.S. who have contracted the virus. Guess it's time to get out the razors.
