Cloth Face Covering Guidance
The La Crosse County Health Department recommends that all people cover their face when in public. This includes while at work in essential roles like retail or manufacturing. Covering your face protects people who may not know they are sick from spreading the disease. Cotton fabric masks or scarves can be used as a face covering. Cotton is more effective than other fabrics. After each use, wash in hot water.
For more information and details about recommendations regarding cloth face coverings visit our regional website at www.covid19compass.org.

**If you have cloth face coverings to donate, you can take them directly to Isle La Plume in La Crosse or Great Rivers United Way office in Onalaska from 7am-3pm. These will be distributed to members of our community who may not be able to make their own, as well as employees in essential roles and those providing services face to face.**
If you are in need of a cloth face covering, please contact Julie Nelson @ firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 608-796-1400.
