Cloth Face Coverings

People visiting any Lake Regional facility should be wearing masks, regardless of their vaccination status. If they come without one, we will provide a mask for their visit.

How to Wear a Cloth Face Mask

Cloth face coverings should:

  • fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
  • be secured with ties or ear loops
  • include multiple layers of fabric
  • allow for breathing without restriction
  • be able to be laundered and machine dried without damage or change to shape
