Masks

Facebook Sample Message

Wear a mask when you’re in public to help slow the spread of COVID-19. When selecting a mask, you have many choices. Avoid masks that are made of materials that make it too hard to breathe. Also avoid masks with valves or vents that allow virus particles to escape and masks that should be saved for healthcare workers. Wear cloth masks with two or more layers to help protect yourself and others from COVID-19.

Wear a mask when you are around people not living in your household, especially when social distancing (staying at least 6 feet apart) is difficult to maintain.

Stop the Spread

Much is unknown about how the virus that causes COVID-19 spreads. We believe it spreads mostly from person to person through respiratory droplets produced when someone who is sick coughs or sneezes.

You can help prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses like COVID-19 by following simple daily precautions.

Contact Tracing

Facebook Sample Messages

If you have been in close contact with a person who has COVID-19, a public health worker may call to let you know you’ve been exposed and ask you to stay at home and self-quarantine. Doing so keeps you, your family, and your community safe. Be part of the solution and help slow the spread of COVID-19. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/contact-tracing.html


If you are waiting for a COVID-19 test result, get ready in case someone from the health department calls you to check on your health, discuss who you’ve been around recently, and ask you to stay home to self-isolate, if you aren’t doing so already. Tell people who you have been around that they may have been exposed to COVID-19. Answer the call to slow the spread: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/downloads/php/318271-A_FS_KeyStepsWhenWaitingForCOVID-19Results_3.pdf
