Windsor Essex County Health Unit Medical Officer recommends residents wear cloth masks

Our local medical officer of health is recommending residents wear cloth masks when they are in locations where physical distancing may be a challenge. 

  • WECHU recommends the wearing of cloth mask when going outdoors when maintaining physical distancing of 6 feet is not possible or difficult. Examples included grocery shopping, public transit.
  • This provides an additional layer of protection.
  • When wearing a cloth mask, it stops YOU from spreading germs and protects OTHERS from your germs.
  • Mask usage does not remove physical distancing, handwashing, limiting trips to public places and staying home if sick.
