#WearAMaskWA — A Washington State Initiative

Why do you wear a mask? There are so many reasons. Save lives. Protect your neighbor. Get back to work. It’s the right thing to do.

Tell the world why you wear a mask. Share your story, not your germs. Let’s stay healthy. Let’s restart our lives. Let’s restart our livelihoods. Let’s get the world to follow!

Participate in 5 easy steps!

Grab your phone, put on your mask, and make a short (30 seconds) video explaining why you wear a mask.

The video should include your name, where in Washington you live, and a reason why you have made the choice to wear a mask when you leave the house.

Follow this easy script (or get creative): “My name is (your first name), I live in (city or county) and I wear a mask because… “

At the end you can add “why do YOU wear a mask?” When you share your video on social media, tag others to inspire them to respond.

Post on social media: Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, Facebook, and LinkedIn and be sure to use #WearAMaskWA.
