• MASKS AND TESTING
o Do you wear a mask to keep yourself and others safe?
o Do the people you know wear masks?
o If you said no to either of those questions, PLEASE know how important it is to cover your face.
o It can make the difference of getting sick or getting someone else sick; you can save your life and others’ lives; and it’ll help us continue to reopen – or not.
o We have to protect ourselves and each other and masks will help us do that.
o Also go get tested. We still have 10 sites throughout the city where you can go – in addition to the pop-up sites.
