Staff and the People we serve demonstrate how to properly wear their face masks. It is important to make sure that the face mask covers your mouth and your nose as both of these are ways that the virus can spread when you either cough or sneeze . Wearing a mask is a good way to show that you respect other people and want to be safe your-self. Wearing a mask is one of the most important things we can do . Other things are washing our hands , making sure we stay 6ft away from others and sanitizing things after we use them . Together we can all stay healthy and safe.
