Maryland Department of Health expands #MasksOnMaryland campaign

August 27th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

The Maryland Department of Health (MDH) today announced the expansion of its #MasksOnMaryland campaign, with new media and social components to debut this week in English and Spanish. The campaign, which initially launched on June 25, encourages Marylanders to use face coverings in public places to help to protect themselves, their loved ones, co-workers and communities from COVID-19. 


“Reminding Marylanders to continue to be vigilant is critical, so we can continue to slow the spread of COVID-19 as we move into the fall,” said Governor Larry Hogan. “#MasksOnMaryland encourages all of us to recognize how we can go about living our lives if we take the right precautions, like wearing masks. We all have a role to play in keeping our communities safe.”


The new campaign elements are designed to speak to a wide range of Marylanders, but especially to people aged 18 to 34 and those who have been disproportionately affected by COVID-19, including Maryland’s Hispanic and African American communities. The campaign includes radio, digital, TV and social media ads. Local “influencers” will also help spread the message that residents can “carry on” when they “mask on.”

    Hogan says that the virus is out there and we have to be careful but then he says that it’s OK for the children to go back to school.
    It’s not OK.
