24” x 24” PVC Sign – Please Wear A Mask

Tip: Protective multi-layer reusable masks can be bought from retailers such as Amazon, Walmart, Costco, Nordstrom, and other select stores.

Hammond students and Howard County Residents should transition to wear washable or reusable masks to reduce the amount of litter found in our oceans and parks. As the number of Covid-19 cases increase, more people are going to start wearing disposable masks, which will lead to more pollution and waste. Please consider buying reusable masks.
