Cloth Face Coverings

​​Project America Strong  

As American businesses begin to open again, it’s important we continue to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and keep members of our communities healthy and safe. Wearing a cloth face covering, practicing social distancing, and washing your hands are good practices that will continue to protect us and our neighbors as our economy reopens.

Although some people with COVID-19 show symptoms, many people do not. Even people who do not have symptoms can still spread the virus to others, including older adults, people with special medical conditions like asthma or heart disease, and other people who are particularly vulnerable to the disease. By wearing a cloth face covering, you can help slow the spread of COVID-19 – you might even save someone’s life.
