Zags: Help Keep Our Community Safe!

How to wear a mask properly
Spike (and the CDC) says: Masks should cover your mouth and nose!

With vaccines rolling out, the sun shining, and a desire to celebrate the end of the Spring Semester, it's easy to forget we are still in a global pandemic.

However, cases of COVID-19 have been spiking recently and new strains of the virus are popping up. It's critical that we keep wearing masks properly – and taking care of them – to help reduce the spread of the virus. 


Dr. Charlita Shelton also has some tips and reminders to keep us all safe..
