Important COVID-19 Info

Protect yourself, and your friends. Wear a MASK!

CDC recommends that people wear masks in public settings, like on public and mass transportation, at events and gatherings, and anywhere they will be around other people.

  • Wear masks with two or more layers to stop the spread of COVID-19

  • Wear the mask over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin

  • Masks should be worn by people two years and older

  • Masks should NOT be worn by children younger than two, people who have trouble breathing, or people who cannot remove the mask without assistance

  • Do NOT wear masks intended for healthcare workers, for example, N95 respirators

  • CDC does not recommend the use of face shields alone. Evaluation of face shields is ongoing but effectiveness is unknown at this time.

  • Evaluation of mask and gaiter materials and structure is ongoing.
