Wear A Face Covering in Washington as directed by State of WA, effective July 7, 2020 - more info here: https://kingcounty.gov/depts/health/covid-19/care/masks.aspx *** Winter mask tip: Wet masks won't protect you ***
- Change your mask when it becomes wet. A wet mask is harder to breathe through, is less efficient at filtering, and vents more around the edges of the mask.
- Keep a spare mask to replace one that becomes wet from the moisture in your breath, snow, or rain.
