Bring Your Own Mask #BYOM
LA County residents are asked to wear a mask when they are interacting with people they don't live with. Wearing a mask or face covering is important because:
- We can have the COVID-19 virus and infect others with it, before we even show symptoms. If we cover our nose and mouth, we can limit the spread of the virus.
- We touch our face less when our face is covered. Touching our faces after touching something contaminated with COVID-19 increases our chances of getting the virus.
