During this Pandemic we know that the CDC has recommended wearing masks due to their recommended social distancing guidelines, so we thought, "Why not follow CDC guidelines and social distancing in style!"

CDC continues to study the spread and effects of the novel coronavirus across the United States.  We now know from recent studies that a significant portion of individuals with coronavirus lack symptoms (“asymptomatic”) and that even those who eventually develop symptoms (“pre-symptomatic”) can transmit the virus to others before showing symptoms.  This means that the virus can spread between people interacting in close proximity—for example, speaking, coughing, or sneezing—even if those people are not exhibiting symptoms.  In light of this new evidence, CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.

We are offering TMC handmade cloth masks to anyone who requests them. Please sign up for the event and send an email to dperez@missioncontinues.org with your name, address, and how many masks you need. (Adult size only)
