Not too long ago in California, the option to wear a face-covering in public was a suggestion to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
Now, it is a mandate.
In response to the increased coronavirus cases in the state, last month, Governor Gavin Newsom ordered all Californians to wear face coverings in public spaces when physical distancing is not feasible.
To help spread the word (and not the virus), the Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) is a proud participant in the statewide campaign #MasksOnCA.
Created by the Business, Consumer Services and Housing Agency (BCSH), #MasksOnCA is a promotional effort to encourage all Californians across our great state to wear their face coverings safely and proudly.
The social media campaign features short videos and still images of actual employees of departments under the BCSH umbrella. While performing their daily tasks to protect California consumers, at work, in the field, or out in public, these dedicated state employees share their motivation for wearing a mask.
DCA Director Kimberly Kirchmeyer has great reasons to wear a mask. Why do YOU wear a mask? #MasksOnCA to #SlowTheSpread of #COVID19 @CAbcsh pic.twitter.com/okW8bZHSFc
