Wayne UNC Health Care Launches Wayne Wears a Mask Campaign
Goldsboro, NC, July 15, 2020—As part of Wayne UNC Health Care’s commitment to community health and wellness, it has launched the Wayne Wears a Mask campaign. This campaign is designed to spread awareness of the benefits of wearing a mask in public.
“Research shows when social distancing isn’t possible, masks or face coverings can go a long way in slowing the spread of COVID-19,” said Dr. Brian Fillipo, MD, MMM, FACP, Wayne UNC Vice President, Medical Affairs and Chief Medical Officer. “When you commit to wearing a mask, you protect those around you from the respiratory particles you breathe, speak, laugh, cough or sneeze into the air. When everyone wears a mask, we substantially reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 in our community.”
To participate in the Wayne Wears a Mask campaign, Wayne UNC is asking community members to share why they wear a mask. Participants should take a photo of themselves while wearing their mask, holding a sign they complete that reads “I wear a mask . . .” Then post the photo to social media using the hashtag #waynewearsamask and tagging Wayne UNC Health Care.
