MONTEREY COUNTY — The Arts Council for Monterey County (Arts4MC) has launched a new initiative called “Keeping Monterey County Safe,” teaming up with local artists to design mask posters for the public in hopes of spreading the county’s health message about wearing a mask.

According to the CDC, “Cloth face coverings are a critical tool in the fight against Covid-19 that could reduce the spread of the disease, particularly when used universally within communities. There is increasing evidence that cloth face coverings help prevent people who have Covid-19 from spreading the virus to others.”

During this pandemic, Arts4MC wants to do its part in helping stop the spread of the virus with these posters, which include messages that are artistic, clear and engaging for the community.

“We want to see our county re-open as soon as possible, so we hope everyone, residents and visitors, will follow our county’s advice of wearing masks and social distancing,” said Jacquie Atchison, Arts4MC executive director. “The Arts Council is pleased to provide local businesses these colorful and engaging posters to post in the windows of their businesses.”
