Your face covering protects others. Their face covering protects you. As COVID-19 remains a threat to our health and safety, City Leadership is encouraging you to help preserve the health and wellness of our community. In addition to wearing a face covering, here are three easy ways to protect each other:
- Stay home if you are sick.
- Practice social distancing.
- Wash your hands frequently.
CDC guidelines say that the use of cloth face coverings helps to slow the spread. COVID-19 spreads mainly from person to person through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. Studies and evidence
on infection control report that these droplets usually travel around 6 feet (about two arms lengths).
