As we all ease into #TheNewNormal, keeping safe and protected becomes even more important. While physical distancing and other sanitary measures are still being observed, you can never be too careful. That’s why wearing masks is a non-negotiable: it's crucial for your own safety, as well as the safety of the people you may encounter!
