Healthy In Utah:

● Wear a Mask;
○ The Center for Disease Control guidelines recommends wearing a mask to prevent the
potential spread of COVID-19.
○ Face coverings are recommended in all public settings and when around individuals
outside your household, especially when physical distancing is difficult
○ Tips for properly wearing your mask include:
■ Ensure your nose and mouth are fully covered

■ If your mask fits properly, you should not experience difficulty breathing while
wearing it
■ Your mask should feel secure and not slip once it’s on
● Maintain Physical Distance:
