One Manchester more than ever

by Melinda Lantz | Aug 17, 2020

Posted Aug. 17 - As students and colleagues return to Manchester, masks are mandatory. The state requires us to wear them, but we made that decision before it was mandated. Why?

The science is sound that masks, along with social distancing, are two of our most powerful weapons against COVID-19. They are simple, painless ways to slow transmission of the coronavirus.

They are also profound statements about our investment in One Manchester, in shared responsibility for our individual and collective health. More than protecting individuals, they protect communities like ours.

Wearing a mask and social distancing are clear statements we can make individually and together to say that we believe in One Manchester. #MaskforOneManchester
