Face Coverings

  • As we continue to monitor COVID-19 cases in our community, please be aware of the purpose of face coverings and how to properly wear them.

    Wear your Face Covering Correctly

    • Wash your hands before putting on your face covering
    • Put it over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin
    • Try to fit it snugly against the sides of your face
    • Make sure you can breathe easily

    Take Off Your Cloth Face Covering Carefully, When You’re Home

    • Untie the strings behind your head or stretch the ear loops
    • Handle only by the ear loops or ties
    • Fold outside corners together
    • Place covering in the washing machine or hand wash
    • Be careful not to touch your eyes, nose, and mouth when removing and wash hands immediately after removing.

    Wear a Face Covering to Protect Others

    • Wear a face covering that covers your nose and mouth to help protect others in case you’re infected with COVID-19 but don’t have symptoms
    • Wear a face covering in public settings when around people who don’t live in your household, especially when it may be difficult for you to stay six feet apart
    • Wear a face covering correctly for maximum protection
    • Don’t put the face covering around your neck or up on your forehead
    • Don’t touch the face covering, and, if you do, wash your hands or use hand sanitizer to disinfect

    As a reminder, cloth face coverings should be washed after each use. It is important to always remove face coverings correctly and wash your hands after handling or touching a used face covering.
