Going #BackToSchool this year is going to be very different from years past.— Indiana State Department of Health (@StateHealthIN) July 30, 2020
Take the time to talk with your children about #COVID19 and help prepare them for what to expect when they go back.#MaskUpHoosiers pic.twitter.com/Y1jNXkMq3a
Hoosiers have worked hard to get where we are today with businesses open & people back at work. We want to keep it that way. We don’t want to dial things back. Face coverings can & will help us blunt the increase of this virus.#MaskUpHoosiershttps://t.co/OJGPB1iP7z pic.twitter.com/mVzBddNnjZ— Governor Eric Holcomb (@GovHolcomb) July 27, 2020
.@StateHealthIN needs all Hoosiers to mask up and do their part to keep our state safe and healthy. To help slow the spread of #COVID19, avoid these common mask-wearing mistakes, and make sure you wear your face mask correctly. #MaskUpHoosiers pic.twitter.com/uY2yV0hZan— Governor Eric Holcomb (@GovHolcomb) July 6, 2020
Families across the country are adapting to the evolving changes in daily life caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Most schools, places of public gathering, and nonessential businesses are closed, and parents and other caregivers are faced with helping their families adjust to the new normal.
Who should NOT use cloth face coverings: children under age 2, or anyone who has trouble breathing, is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance. Cloth face coverings are NOT surgical masks or N95 respirators. Currently, surgical masks and N95 respirators are critical supplies that should be reserved for healthcare workers and other first responders.
