City of Troy Launches Campaign to Promote Face Mask Use to Limit Spread of COVID-19



Mayor Patrick Madden today announced the launch of a local campaign to remind Troy residents to wear face masks in public to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and support a safe reopening of Troy & the Capital Region. The citywide effort features Troy business owners, local officials, neighborhood leaders, and Troy families wearing masks and delivering a message to encourage their neighbors, family, and friends to follow health protocols for face coverings & social distancing.

Mayor Madden said, “The simple act of wearing a mask can save lives. By following protocols issued by public health experts, we can help prevent the further spread of COVID-19 and ensure a safe, responsible reopening for small businesses, industries, and local governments. It’s our collective responsibility to wear a mask when in public; let’s work together to protect community health, support our medical workers, and keep our local businesses open.”

Promotional materials, including posters, flyers, and social media photo frames, can be downloaded at www.troyny.gov/WearAMask

Troy residents are encouraged to share a photo of themselves wearing a face mask on social media. Photos can be posted using #WearAMaskNY #TroyNY hashtags and tagging @TroyCityHall on Twitter and Instagram.

Photos can also be emailed to [email protected] with a brief, single sentence explaining why they wear a mask (ex. “I wear a mask because we are all in this together”; “I wear a mask in support of all small businesses”; “I wear a mask to support our community.”) for inclusion in the campaignSubmissions should also identify their neighborhood, organization, or business of the individual submitting their photo for inclusion.

Earlier this month, Mayor Madden released a PSA video message reminding Troy residents to wear a face mask when in public to protect public health, help medical workers, and ensure a safe, responsible reopening of the local economy. The video is available on the City’s official YouTube and Facebook pages.

The local campaign follows New York State’s #WearAMaskNY PSA contest to remind New Yorkers to wear a mask to protect public health.
