Greeley City Council Urges Community to Wear Masks
Greeley City Council declared its support Tuesday for mask wearing and encouraged the public to help reduce the spread of COVID during this local disaster and global pandemic.
Council passed a resolution during its normal meeting, Nov. 17, urging all citizens to cover their faces with cloth masks in accordance with guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Because COVID-19 can spread through people who do not have symptoms and do not know they are infected, masks provide an extra layer to help prevent the respiratory droplets from traveling in the air and onto other people. The CDC determined that masks can help reduce the spread of COVID-19 when widely used by people in public settings and recommends masks in public settings when around persons who do not live in the same households, and particularly where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
Anyone can view Tuesday’s entire meeting, including the consideration of that resolution, on the City of Greeley YouTube channel.
