You may not realize it, but there are things we do every day that help keep our communities and those around us safer. Whether it’s signaling a left turn on your way to the grocery store, buckling your child into their car seat before a trip or washing your hands before preparing a meal for friends and family, you have the power to make a difference.

And now, the need for everyday heroes like you is even stronger.

Wearing a mask and encouraging others to do the same can help significantly slow the spread of COVID-19. And when you wear a mask, you’re not just doing it for yourself. You’re doing it for your elderly neighbor, your friend who just had a baby, your mom who is battling breast cancer. You’re doing it for your community.

So, tell us why you wear a mask. We’re asking you to join our #GetMaskedFL conversation to help reinforce the importance of wearing a mask. Tell us why it’s important to you and who it helps in your life. You can upload pictures, videos and stories that show or explain why you wear a mask.

Here’s how it works

  1. Share your photo, video or story with the hashtag #GetMaskedFL on Instagram or Twitter.
  2. Through the end of the year, visit to share photos, videos and stories about why you wear a mask. Once there you can add to the conversation by clicking “Submit” in the top right corner of the screen. Next:
    • Select the type of entry you’d like to add: photo, video or story.
    • Fill in the rest of your info.
    • Complete the verification.
    • Hit “Submit.”
