  • When worn by someone with COVID-19, even if they don’t have symptoms, face coverings may reduce the risk of spreading the virus to others.
  • Since not everyone with COVID-19 knows that they are sick, wearing a face covering helps make sure that you are not unknowingly affecting others.
  • If worn by everyone when outside the home doing essential activities, this can help slow the overall spread of the virus and keep our community safer.
