Greeley City Council Urges Community to Wear Masks
Greeley City Council declared its support through resolution for mask wearing and encouraged the public to help reduce the spread of COVID during this local disaster and global pandemic.
City officials strongly encourage community members to follow those agencies’ guidance and practice social distancing and CDC-recommended precautions for any gatherings smaller than that size.
The city urges everyone to take the following CDPHE-recommended precautions to protect yourself and those around you:
- Make or buy a cloth covering that will cover your mouth and nose and use it whenever you are outside your own house or yard. Scarves and bandanas will work as coverings. Wash your face covering frequently. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has a mandatory mask-wearing requirement in effect for Colorado.
- Frequently and thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
- Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash, or use your inner elbow or sleeve.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Stay home if you’re sick, and keep your children home if they are sick.
- Clean surfaces in your home, and personal items such as cell phones, using regular household products.
