Washington state requires face mask coverings indoors and outdoors if you can’t keep 6 feet distance in public spaces. This is a public health campaign by our youth prevention leaders of Rock Solid, and San Juan Island Prevention Coalition, Lopez Island Prevention Coalition and Coalition for Orcas Youth helping to bring awareness that we can help stop the spread of COVID-19 by wearing a mask around others.

“Youth teaching youth is an effective strategy in prevention. When Dr. James from the SJC Board of Health mentioned us in his meeting a few weeks ago to help support our peers wearing masks; we helped create this contest on our Instagram account @sjipreventioncoalition,” Luke Fincher, a Rock Solid youth, said. “It’s essential to wear a mask in public to help reduce the spread of COVID in our community. It’s a simple act of kindness.”
