  • With the United States now at 232 thousand deaths due to COVID-19, and Ohio
    having record breaking COVID cases daily for the last week, wearing a mask might just be the thing that saves us. Studies show if all Americans wore masks, we could be finished with this pandemic in 4-8 weeks. But the key is to wear it properly! (demonstrate proper mask wearing technique) This means that the mask must cover both the mouth AND the nose and should be changed and laundered daily....like your underwear. So save lives and wear your mask right!
