We are encouraging people across the country to continue to practice safe measures to stop the spread of COVID-19.
This campaign aims to offer resources on proper mask-wearing and care practices in addition to advice from health leaders to better equip our nation with the information they need to keep themselves, their family, and their communities safe.
We encourage all people to follow science: continue social distancing, washing hands for at least 20 seconds, and most importantly, to wear a face covering when outside the home.
New Community Guidance on Improving Mask Use — This guidance discusses correct and consistent mask use, and how to ensure masks provide the best protection (e.g., look at how well it fits, how well it filters the air, and how many layers it has).
AHA members may download and add their own branding for use in local markets by emailing us here.
