Silent Spreaders

Not everyone who is infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus feels sick, and sometimes it takes time for people to have symptoms. However, these people can still spread the virus to others.


Masks Help

Studies show that masks may help reduce the amount of virus breathed in, but importantly, they also help stop the spread of the virus from people who already have it.


Old Rules Still Apply

Wearing a mask can help slow the spread, but it's still important to practice social distancing, use good handwashing techniques, and to make sure that you're not touching your face!
