The Importance of protecting Others

If COVID-19 is spreading in your community, you can stay safe by taking some simple precautions, such as physical distancing, wearing a mask, keeping rooms well ventilated, avoiding crowds, cleaning your hands, and coughing into a bent elbow or tissue. Check local advice where you live and work. Do it all!

Let's make wearing a mask a normal part of being around other people!

Join me in making masks normal by wearing one! Show your friends and family that you think its is important.

And always remember, that when wearing a mask, you are making sure you do not accidentally transmit any viruses or germs your body harbors to someone around you- because you never know what conditions a person has!

Here is an additional mask pattern from John Hopkins Hospital, with cloth ties. Hospitals prefer this mask pattern.
