Help flatten the curve! Stay home, stay safe, wear a mask if you go out.
If you see someone outside without a mask, confront them! Ask why they’re not! Or just point at them if you don’t want to confront them.
We need to let everyone know that it is NOT OK to not care about other members of our community!

We now know that it takes prolonged close exposure (at least 15 minutes) to an infected person in order to contract the disease. Don’t worry about the person outside walking without a mask. They are not a threat to you or others. Focus on yourself. If you’re high risk, stay home.

@Up to us - read the county order!!! Masks are NOT required except when you cannot maintain at least 6 feet of distance. That is VERY easy to do outside. Masks are not required for young children and people with underlying qualifying health conditions. @Outside is correct. 15 minutes! Here's the link. Web Link
