Mask Up Green County is an initiative started by Green County Public Health, and actualized by Green County community stakeholders. This campaign began from anecdotal realizations that there has been little mask wearing happening in Green County. Community leaders began to voice their concerns of this phenomenon. The phrasing “Mask Up” has been used during the COVID-19 pandemic by other states, counties, and cities in the United States to encourage mask wearing.
The Mask Up Green County campaign is focused on three actions:
– Provide education on the importance of mask wearing.
– Encourage mask wearing around other people.
– Make masks accessible to residents.
We need you! The Mask Up Green County campaign requires the partnership of interdisciplinary community stakeholders. In order to educate about masks, encourage mask wearing, and provide access to
masks a team effort is needed on multiple fronts. This effort will require various mediums of communication, connections to community members, your innovative ideas, and commitment to the community. By participating in this campaign you will be helping make Green County a safe and healthy place to live and work.
This is an initiative of the Green County Health Department. For questions regarding this initiative, please call the Health Department at 608-328-9390.
