Protect yourself, protect others – Wear a mask


To Our Fellow Missourians:

There is one simple step we can take to prevent further sickness, death, and economic destruction from COVID-19, and that is to wear masks.

Science clearly supports the effectiveness of mask wearing and there is no longer any excuse for Missourians not to participate in this simple public health activity. This straightforward solution can help reduce the burden felt by medical systems and the public health sector in responding to the surge and help us get the virus under control.

We call on all formal government – including the governor and county officials – to heed the advice of public health experts and require mask wearing in public spaces for all Missourians. Without swift action in this direction, we will fail to take control of this virus and Missourians will continue to suffer.
