In response to the spread of COVD-19, multiple bay area counties have issued orders requiring residents to cover their nose and mouth with cloth face coverings when leaving home for essential travel such as doctor appointments, grocery shopping, or pharmacy visits.
Up until now, local officials have not recommended the large-scale use of face coverings, but circumstances have changed. We know from novel coronavirus research that people can be infected and may spread the virus without having symptoms, and they can be infected and may spread the virus 48 hours before developing symptoms.
To help you follow guidelines we have put together a DIY tutorial from union representative Simone Mock-Williams. If you are a UFCW5 member and would like a mask, please email Simone at firstname.lastname@example.org
