The Morgantown Health and Wellness Commission, along with several local businesses, is hosting a campaign over the next few weeks to encourage Morgantown residents to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines and help reduce the spread of COVID-19.

“We want to spread awareness of how important it is that each of us, as citizens, do our part to help slow the spread of this virus in our community,” said Health and Wellness Commission Chair Hannah Keyser.

The campaign will kick off with its first contest on Tuesday, July 21, and will continue through Friday, July 31. To enter the contest, participants must post a photo of themselves wearing their favorite mask or face covering. The picture caption should contain your age and the hashtag #Masks4Morgantown. The picture may be posted to the Health and Wellness Commission’s Facebook page at LiveWell Morgantown, or on Instagram by tagging the Commission at livewellmorgantown.

Two winners will be chosen in the following age categories:

  • 0-6;
  • 7-12;
  • 13-18;
  • 19-35;
  • 36-60; and
  • 61+.

Winners will receive prizes from campaign sponsors including Dockside, Crab Shack Caribba, Get Fit Juices and Shakes, Scorers, Star City Nutrition, Danielle Bakes Cakes, and more! Winners will be selected by the Health and Wellness Commission and Morgantown Mayor Ron Dulaney.

“We look forward to seeing everyone’s wonderful masks,” said Keyser.
