Wearing A Mask Protects You And Those You Love

In fact, it significantly reduces your risk of being infected or becoming severely sick with COVID-19. Life masked is not a life without your family, work, or time with friends. Life masked is living. #MaskUpParaTuGente, so we can all rise up and stay happy, healthy, and thriving together.

Slow the spread

When you cover up with a mask, you’re looking out for your loved ones. We know that the spread of the coronavirus can be drastically reduced when people take part in the following behaviors:

  • Wearing a mask
  • Washing their hands often
  • Avoiding close contact with others
  • Covering coughs and sneezes
  • Cleaning and disinfecting common areas
  • Monitoring their health daily

Learn more about these risk-reduction behaviors, here.

Why wear a mask?

Wearing a mask protects you and everyone around you from COVID-19. And if you do come in contact with the virus, a mask can lessen how sick you get. You’re more likely to be recovering on your couch rather than the hospital. Remember, even if you aren’t feeling sick, you could still spread COVID-19 to others. A proper mask covers the mouth and nose and is worn anytime you are in public or around people who don’t live with you. Masks should not be worn by children under the age of two or anyone who has trouble breathing.
