Facial Coverings Help Slow The Spread of COVID-19

Wearing a face covering can reduce the spread of COVID-19 by limiting the release of infectious particles into the air. The virus spreads when a person infected with the virus speaks, sneezes or coughs within six feet of one another. As a reminder, COVID-19 can be spread by individuals who may not be showing symptoms and may feel just fine. 

Find resources with fun graphics to share on social media, hang in a shop window or post wherever folks might need a friendly reminder. Let's all work together to keep our community safe.
