Masks Save Lives

As part of our work to help promote mask wearing, PHI sponsored a selfie campaign amongst our staff, asking them to share photos of themselves and their families wearing masks and keeping each other safe. We're delighted to share just some of their photos.

Wearing protective face coverings are a critical way of protecting ourselves, our loved ones and our communities from COVID-19, along with social distancing, handwashing, proper ventilation and other measures. Data shows they can help stop transmitting and catching the coronovirus, when used properly.

As a public health organization, the Public Health Institute supports public health reccommendations for wearing masks in indoor and outdoor public settings, especially when you can’t stay 6 feet away from others. We ask that everyone follow the recommendations made by their county, state and national public health officials. See updated guidance from the World Health Organization.
