SHOW THE LOVE, Sacramento #MaskUpSac

SHOW THE LOVE, Sacramento #MaskUpSac

As a California resident, you may be familiar with Gov. Gavin Newsom’s public-health order that everyone in California is required to wear face coverings when in public indoor spaces or outdoors when they cannot maintain six feet of distance from one another to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Although face coverings are now required by the State, there are still some residents and state visitors who are reluctant to wear a mask when out in public.

In response, the City of Sacramento has created,  “Show the Love, Sacramento,” a social campaign that addresses both of those ideas by connecting mask-wearing with other widely accepted and appreciated ways of showing others love.  Share with your friends and families and make it a project to have an activity for creating homemade face coverings.  Residents are encouraged to “mask up” whenever in a public setting and to participate in the campaign by taking a photo or video of themselves and sharing it and their story with the hashtag ~ #MaskUpSac

The coronavirus can spread when an infected person speaks, sneezes or coughs within six feet of others, according to State health officials and the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). To prevent infection, the State is requiring everyone to cover their nose and mouth when outside of their home.

Residents and organizations can learn more about the City of Sacramento’s campaign and download the media toolkit by visiting the “Show the Love” webpage.
