Re-framing COVID-19 Prevention and Masculinity MASKS
Make decisions about health based upon facts and not assumptions. Maintain awareness of COVID-19 information.
Acknowledge fears, concerns, and anxieties about the COVID-19 virus and other health challenges. It's okay to not be okay
Social distancing doesn't mean isolation. Stay connected to loved ones virtually or through proper social distancing protocols.
Keep in mind, protecting others starts with protecting ourselves. Lead by example by centering your mental, physical, and spiritual health.
Strength is wearing a mask, it is acting with integrity, it is caring for community!
