Town of Davidson Launches Significant Mask Wearing Effort to Support Public Health in Town
The Town of Davidson announces the launch of its public awareness campaign to encourage residents, business employees, and town visitors alike to wear masks and help protect the public health of the community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
On Tuesday, May 19, 2020, the Davidson Board of Commissioners called a special meeting to discuss the town’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result of this meeting, the board decided to strongly recommend that the public use masks in all spaces where social distancing is not possible. To support this effort, the town created a public awareness campaign which includes:
- banners posted in public spaces to remind people of the three Ws (“wear, wait, wash”)
- signage for storefront windows designating that the business requires both employees and customers to wear masks
- decals to help depict proper social distancing spacing on Main Street, and
- car magnets to encourage neighbors to wear masks for the safety of our entire town and all our residents.
You can pick up reusable face masks and car magnets at the Davidson Public Library (119 S. Main Street) or at Davidson Town Hall (216 S. Main Street) by calling 704-892-3971. If you are a business owner in need of signage, please contact Kim Fleming directly at email@example.com.
