This Hero Wears a Mask Award


The recipient of this badge has demonstrated their commitment to public safety by wearing a mask to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus.

Mask-wearing in public places should be a simple choice. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), "Cloth face coverings are recommended as a simple barrier to help prevent respiratory droplets from traveling into the air and onto other people when the person wearing the cloth face-covering coughs, sneezes, talks, or raises their voice."

Let this award serve as a simple "thank you" to those helping to reduce the effects of the global pandemic by choosing to wear a mask and stopping the spread.
