#WorldMaskWeek is a movement to encourage sustained mask-wearing to help bring us closer to the end of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Across the globe, we’ve seen you protect yourselves and others by wearing a mask to slow the spread of COVID-19. Now, as variants spread and countries are overwhelmed by the pandemic, we must stay focused on what keeps us safe.

When you wear a mask in public, you show that you care. As we get closer to the end, it’s more important than ever that we continue masking – not just for ourselves, but for our friends, our families, our communities, and the world.

Join the #WorldMaskWeek movement on social media by sharing a photo of yourself in your favorite mask and tag someone to say #ThanksforMasking
