Wearing a mask is a sign of kindness, of compassion for your community. While wearing a mask in public is not required by law, it is strongly recommended to help slow the spread of COVID-19. We care about our community and encourage anyone venturing out of their homes to be considerate of the people around you. When you visit a store, pick up a carry-out order or enjoy a park, there are employees and other community members all around you who will benefit from your effort.
Here are some tips from the CDC, some from the Ohio Department of Health and these from the City of Columbus Department of Health. Use these to ensure you're wearing your mask in a way that provides the maximum community protection. The links also show you ways to make your own mask at home.
While wearing a facial covering may not feel normal at first, we're all in on making them a part of daily life. Share your mask selfies, and who you're wearing a mask for with #MaskUpCbus.
If you're looking for a mask, there are lots of local options.
