Why is Wearing a Masks Important?

  • Recent studies show that people with COVID-19 can have no symptoms or mild symptoms and still spread the virus.
  • Face masks are intended to protect others. Face masks decrease how many droplets we release when we speak, cough, or sneeze. Whenever we forcefully exhale, we release droplets.
  • Do not touch the inside of your mask. Move it with its elastic or pinch the front. Once you touch it inside you could be contaminating it and putting yourself at risk.
  • Cloth face masks are reusable. These masks should be washed every day with warm water and soap.
