Remember to wear a face covering


Remember to wear a face covering

Face coverings are required in all public indoor spaces, and outdoors when you cannot remain six feet apart. Due to the recent increase in COVID-19 cases in Washington, it’s important to follow the statewide requirements to wear face coverings so that you can protect yourself, your family and the community. CDC recommends all people 2 years of age and older wear a cloth face covering in public settings and when around people who don’t live in your household, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. To minimize the risk of a continued increase in COVID-19, it is even more important to understand the risk and take steps to decrease it.  

Protect yourself and others by taking these steps consistently: 

  • Wear face coverings when you go out 
  • Wash your hands frequently or use alcohol hand gel 
  • Whenever possible, keep 6 feet apart from one another 
  • Get tested at the first sign of illness 
  • Avoid gatherings with people outside your household 

Physical distance and staying home, combined with good hand washing and face coverings, remain the most powerful prevention measures to slow the spread of COVID-19. 

Staff distribute masks to residents.
