Board of Health recommends face coverings

To protect the health of essential workers and members of the community, the Missoula City-County Board of Health adopted a recommendation April 14 that all members of the public and employees and volunteers serving the public wear a cloth face covering over their nose and mouth when in public and unable to social distance.

The recommendation does not replace the need for social distancing, but rather provides additional protection to members of our community from presymptomatic spread.

The recommendation applies to members of the public when doing essential shopping as well as to employees or volunteers who serve people in stores, pharmacies and other such settings.

The recommendation would not apply to those who cannot wear cloth face coverings if contraindicated for their health or cannot wear them properly due to their age or ability.

The Board hopes that the community embraces the recommendation so that an order is not needed.

“The goal is to normalize face coverings to protect others in our community, including those essential workers who are at risk,” said Cindy Farr, Incident Commander with the Missoula City-County Health Department’s COVID-19 response. “These are difficult times, and we all need to do our part to make this happen. Let’s protect our essential workers and our community.”
