City Launches "Mask Up Cape Coral" Public Awareness Campaign
The City of Cape Coral is launching a “Mask Up Cape Coral” public awareness campaign encouraging residents and visitors to use face coverings to help slow the spread of COVID-19. The campaign will continue through the summer and will be extended if needed.
The campaign will focus on the importance of wearing masks. Most people understand social distancing, washing hands frequently, and other CDC safety recommendations can help slow the spread of the virus. The City is encouraging everyone to wear cloth face coverings in public settings, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
“Masks have been proven to be effective at mitigating the spread of COVID-19. Please do your part by wearing a mask. Spread the word, not the virus,” said Fire Chief Ryan Lamb.
The “Mask Up Cape Coral” campaign will include billboard messages near the Cape Coral Parkway and Midpoint Memorial Bridges, banners over Del Prado Boulevard at Veterans Parkway, kiosk messages along SE 47th Terrace, social media posts, and other digital and print messages. The City will be providing campaign graphics and flyers that can be downloaded from the City’s COVID-19 website (capecoral.net/COVID-19). The City also has partnered with the South Cape Community Redevelopment Agency, Cape Coral Chamber of Commerce, Cape Coral Rotary and Kiwanis Clubs, and South Cape Hospitality & Entertainment Associations (SCHEA) to distribute flyers to businesses who encourage or require face coverings.
Any business that will be requiring masks in support of this campaign can have their business listed on the City’s COVID-19 web page. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you want your business listed on the “Mask Up Cape Coral” page.
