MONTGOMERY HEALTH DEPT. MESSAGE

Wear a Mask in Public to Protect Yourself and to Protect Others

This is a reminder to residents and all community partners to wear a cloth face covering, when out in public, to slow the spread of coronavirus.

Growing evidence suggests the virus can spread:

  • Before people show symptoms (pre-symptomatic) and
  • From people who have the virus but never show symptoms (asymptomatic)

Cloth face coverings help prevent spread of COVID-19 in these situations. Wearing a mask when in public helps protect you and those around you.

When going to a supermarket, pharmacy or other life-sustaining business, you must wear a mask to enter the store. Your mask will help protect our critical workers, like cashiers, those stocking shelves + pharmacists. Your mask protects me and mine protects you and in turn your family.

Wear a Mask. Protect Others. Protect Yourself. Protect Your Family.
