Mask Up to keep our cases down

All Albertans are encouraged to wear non-medical masks in public when it's difficult to maintain physical distancing of 2 metres at all times.

Wearing a homemade or non-medical mask in public is another tool to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. It hasn’t been proven that masks protect the person wearing it, but it can help protect people from being exposed to your germs.

Masks should complement – not replace – other prevention measures. Continue physical distancing and good hand hygiene, and stay home when sick.

Encourage others to Mask Up too

Please feel free to print and post or share the resources below in your home, business or on your social media.

As more resources are created we'll share them here for you to use.

We appreciate your help in encouraging others to wear a face covering or mask when in public. Together we'll protect our community and keep cases of COVID-19 in Airdrie down.
