The More You Know-Families and Individuals

 April 3, 2020- Last week during the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) press conference, Governor De Wine and Dr. Amy Acton strongly suggested that Ohioans take extra precautions by wearing protective cloth face coverings (masks) when in public and we continue practicing social distancing.

Cloth face coverings are an important part of our daily wardrobe.  

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommended that Americans wear cloth face coverings (masks) in public to help slow the spread of COVID-19. This recommendation is being made based on studies that show a significant proportion of people with COVID-19 lack symptoms and can transmit the virus to others in close proximity, through speaking, coughing, sneezing or other means.
