In another plea to lower coronavirus cases in Colorado, Governor Polis decided to use visual aids.

In a post on his Facebook page this morning. Governor Polis shared an 8-second video from PBS that shows the difference a mask makes. When someone coughs without a mask on, their germs travel a farther distance— which, you know, should be obvious, but sometimes you have to see it to believe it.

1. Watch this eight second video on how face masks protect us.
2. Wear a mask.

Since COVID-19 passes in droplets, it can spread through coughs, sneezes, or even just talking too closely to someone. This is why many health professionals continue to urge Coloradans to wear a mask in public and continue to social distance as much as you can.
