Wearing Is Caring

As colder weather pushes people indoors more, case numbers are rising—particularly in people age 15 to 24 according to the Minnesota Department of Health. While young adults are reportedly at lower risk of severe disease or death from COVID-19, some still experience serious illness, and all can transmit the infection to others. Be vigilant! Wash your hands, stay six feet away from others, and wear a mask to keep schools, restaurants, stores, and more open.
