The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources has given us cloth face coverings to distribute in our community. They are 100% cotton and measure 6.5″ by 4.5″ (minus the ear loops). If you would like a few for yourself or your family, stop by the health department anytime and help yourself to the ones on the table in our vestibule. If you’re representing a local business or community organization and would like a larger amount, please email JeffersonLHD@wv.gov with “Cloth Masks” in the subject line.
Because anyone could be an asymptomatic carrier of COVID-19, it is very important that everyone use a cloth face covering over their nose and mouth in public places, especially indoors. These cloth masks are an important public health tool, but do NOT replace social distancing and frequent handwashing.
Stay safe and healthy Jefferson County!
