With the Federal and Provincial Health Officials recommending we wear a face mask when in public, SACA’s here to help with how to properly wear a face mask and where to source face masks here in our community. Because each provider only has a limited capacity to provide masks we’ve also included a few suppliers beyond the community.

HOW to properly wear a face mask: Please watch this informative video from our very own Dr. Hinshaw on how to properly wear a mask, including how to store and carry a reusable mask while taking it home to wash: Click here to go to the video
