We have the responsibility to protect ourselves, our families, and our community.

We are not defenseless against COVID-19. Cloth face coverings are one of the most powerful weapons we have to slow and stop the spread of the virus – particularly when used universally within a community setting.” –

CDC Director Dr. Robert R. Redfield.

Transmission

How COVID-19 spreads

The virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks.

Transmission

Why do we need masks?

COVID-19 kills the vulnerable, the elderly and the immunocompromised. Those who survive may face weeks or months of slow, painful recovery, and may never fully come back 100%.

Our masks

Using cloth face coverings prevents hoarding of medical masks. Surgical and N-95 masks are critical resources needed by healthcare workers and other first responders.
Cloth masks are:

Washable

Reusable

Safe

Easy to wear and easier to clean

How to Wear Your Mask

Make sure you can breathe easily
Before you put on your mask, wash your hands
Place it over your nose and mouth
Try to fit it snugly against the sides of your face
Wait until you get home to take off your mask.
Try to fit it snugly against the sides of your face

WHY ARE MASKS EFFECTIVE?

  • Help to slow and stop the spread of the virus
  • Remind people not to touch their faces
  • Remind people to maintain distance with others.
  • Prevent droplets that carry the virus from escaping and infecting others.
  • Reduce asymptomatic transmission

“By wearing a face mask there is just a 3% chance of spreading COVID-19” – The Lancet, June 3, 2020.

Protection of vulnerable groups

COVID-19 kills the vulnerable, the elderly and the immunocompromised. Those who survive may face weeks or months of slow, painful recovery, and may never fully come back 100%.

Masks donations and using masks in public are a form of source control, preventing those who are sick from easily infecting the vulnerable.
