The Morgantown Health and Wellness Commission, along with several local businesses, is hosting their second campaign to encourage Morgantown residents to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelings and help reduce the spread of COVID-19.

"We look forward to continuing our contests to get citizens of Morgantown thinking about how they can do their part to slow the spread of the virus," said Health and Wellness Commission Chair Hannah Keyser.

The campaign will begin immediately, and will continue through Monday, Aug. 31. To enter the contest, participants must post a photo or a video of themselves wearing their favorite mask or face covering during social fitnessing (taking part in activity while also following social distancing guidelines). The picture or video caption should contain your age and the hashtag #Masks4Morgantown. The picture or video 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:

  • 17 and under; and
  • 18+.

Winners will receive prizes from campaign sponsors including Dockside, Crab Shack Caribba, Get Fit Juices and Shakes, Scorers, Hoot and Howl, Masks4Masks, Wellbeing Solutions and more! Winners will be selected bu the Health and Wellness Commission and Morgantown Mayor Ron Dulaney.

"We look forward to seeing how everyone is staying active while also social distancing," said Keyser.
