Masks and Face Coverings
Wearing a tight-fitting face covering or mask can help slow the spread of COVID-19 when combined with everyday preventative actions. Masks significantly reduce the spread of virus between people.
The CDC recommends everyone wear masks while in public settings, at events and gatherings, and anywhere they will be around other people. Additionally, many communities in our region have issued ordinances that require masks to be worn in public. Find out more about mask ordinances in your community through the agencies listed on our Public Health Resources page.
