With the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to affect people throughout the state there is a MaskOn movement going on now. Individuals are strongly encouraged to wear protective face coverings when out in public.
“A new campaign from @ProcterGamble encourages you to wear a mask to protect others,” tweeted Ohio’s Republican Gov. Mike DeWine. “Look for billboards from the Outdoor Advertising Association of Ohio & PSAs from the Ohio Association of Broadcasters with this important message.”
A P&G spokeswoman told Marketing Daily, “We’re not making a political statement, We simply want to spread the message that masks are one way we can all help protect ourselves — family, friends and neighbors. It’s not a P&G campaign, per se, but a grassroots campaign throughout Ohio that we are supporting.”
The Area Agency on Aging 3 is also encouraging anyone who is going out in public to wear face coverings. The agency has been closed to the public since March and staff has been working remotely, while conducting assessments and visits virtually and telephonically.
As of Monday, July 20th, all Walmart's nationwide will require patrons to wear a mask when on the premises. Walmart is following in the footsteps of several other retailers that are requiring face covering.
The are Agency on Aging 3 is working hard to make sure that individuals have the most up-to-date information available via social media and our website at www.aaa3.org. From the Do's & Don'ts, Care & Cleaning, Proper Wear, and Types of Masks, AAA3 wants to make sure that individuals have the education they need when wearing masks.
