WHY WEAR A MASK?
The most powerful thing you can do to limit the spread of COVID-19 in our community is to shelter in place and stay home.
If you do need to leave the house it is very important you practice strict social distancing, a minimum of six feet apart and practice good hand and face hygiene.
An added strategy we can all take to decrease the risk of transmission of COVID-19 is to mask up whenever we do leave the house.
The reason to mask up is to protect those around you from you. When we talk, when we laugh, when we cough, we emit tiny droplets. These droplets can contain infectious virus. COVID-19 may have very mild symptoms, or even no symptoms at all, yet we can still transmit infection to others.
When you are out in public, MASK UP, FAIRBANKS!
