How to use covering in a sentence?

  1. Anne Schuchat:

    The coronavirus that we're talking about is a respiratory virus. It's spread in a similar way to the common cold or to influenza. It's spread through coughs and sneezes, so those everyday sensible measures that we tell people to do every year with the flu are important here -- covering your cough, staying home when you're sick and washing your hands.

  2. Andrea Cristina Mercado:

    Everything we've heard indicates the opposite of what the supervisors are saying, we've been told there was a ballot back-up for weeks at that facility. It would be a horrifying discovery if either the USPS management or the supervisor of elections was in some way covering up mishandling that occurred there.

  3. Valuable Player:

    Players make mistakes, coaches make mistakes and we have to be able to cover for one another, and T-Lue did that by covering for Cleveland Cavaliers coach David Blatt and I just try to cover for my guys on the floor. That's why we're a unit.

  4. E. B. White:

    The liberal holds that he is true to the republic when he is true to himself. (It may not be as cozy an attitude as it sounds.) He greets with enthusiasm the fact of the journey, as a dog greets a man's invitation to take a walk. And he acts in the dog's way too, swinging wide, racing ahead, doubling back, covering many miles of territory that the man never traverses, all in the spirit of inquiry and the zest for truth. He leaves a crazy trail, but he ranges far beyond the genteel old party he walks with and he is usually in a better position to discover a skunk.

  5. Kendall Jenner:

    Where it really impacted me was how self-conscious I became about it. It completely ruined my self-esteem. I wouldn’t even look at people when I talked to them, i felt like such an outcast; when I spoke, it was with my hand covering my face. Sure, I had crushes in high school, but I wouldn’t even think about looking at guys.
