Love Thy Neighbor

During COVID-19, we all need to do our part to slow the spread of the virus. That’s why CHA is inviting our members, as well as our partners in faith, education, and social services, and the public at large, to unite around the simple message that wearing a mask expresses love and solidarity for one another during these challenging times. Please feel free to use any of the #LoveThyNeighbor social media campaign materials, information and other resources on this page and join us in sharing this important message with your family, friends and colleagues. If you have questions, would like additional information, or have ideas on how to spread the word, contact Brian Reardon, vice president, communications and marketing.

“Wearing a mask is about caring for your friends and neighbors and follows Christ’s simple commandment to love one another. It’s an easy, safe and effective way to protect everyone for the common good. Wearing a mask as recommended by the CDC will make a big difference in slowing the spread of COVID-19. Let’s do this together for each other.”

Face Mask Facts

  • The CDC recommends that people wear cloth face coverings in public settings and when around people who don’t live in your household, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
  • Cloth face coverings may help prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus to others.
  • Cloth face coverings are most likely to reduce the spread of COVID-19 when they are widely used by people in public settings.
  • Cloth face coverings should NOT be worn by children under the age of 2 or anyone who has trouble breathing, is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.
