Who should post the COVID-19 Please Wear Face Mask Window Cling?
The COVID-19 Please Wear Face Mask Window Cling can be used by businesses with glass entrances, storefronts, or other smooth surfaces at facility entrance points. The Please Wear Face Mask Window Cling clearly communicates prior to entering the facility that employees, customers, and visitors should wear a protective face covering to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) while on the premises.
Why post the Please Wear Face Mask Window Cling?
State and local health orders may require face masks to be worn by all persons at the facility. Even where not required by law or a public health order, requiring face masks is a prudent policy for all workplaces.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) strongly advises the use of cloth face coverings to slow the spread of COVID-19.
- Face masks help prevent people who have the virus and do not know it from transmitting the virus to others.
- Face masks worn by healthy people helps protect them from contracting the virus from carriers.
The CDC recommends wearing cloth face masks particularly in places of public accommodation and settings where compliance with physical distancing measures may be difficult to achieve and maintain.
Face masks also remind others to continue observing other behaviors the CDC and public health officials recommend to control the spread of COVID-19, including:
- Staying home as much as possible
- Practicing social distancing (remaining at least 6 feet away from others)
- Frequent hand washing
- Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces
- Wearing face masks
Also share the social distancing message
