Face masks and cleansing wipes are common tools used to combat COVID-19. Many carry these when they do leave the house for essential work.

Mr. John Groess, Math Teacher: “I have a cool cloth mask back there that I wear when I go out. My mom made it, so it’s like math-themed and it’s got a bunch of math formulas on my face. Yeah, I’m a pretty big dork.”

Dr. Adam Ehrmantraut, President: “The elements that are recommended by the governor and the CDC. We just implement those so if I’m going out in public and I’m going into a building I’ll wear a mask, my hands feel like leather because they’re constantly being washed. You know, we’re limiting our contact with other people as much as possible. But we’re on the verge, I think we’re going to start seeing a change soon. People are broadening their circles, and you know you can see people say ‘I’m going to get on with life a bit and live through this.”

Ben James, Class of 2022: “I’ve tried to avoid close contact with other people. Also, I really increased the amount I wash my hands and use hand sanitizer now just to make sure I don’t get sick.”

JoAnn Meyer, Parent: “We are staying home. We order as many groceries and necessities curb-side as we can and only go into a store when absolutely necessary. Our kids are not socializing with friends in-person and we luckily don’t have to go out much since we can work from home.”

Sarah McGurl, Class of 2021: “At work, I wear a mask. I carry wipes in my car and wipe down my door handle and steering wheel often.”

Charlie Warnert, Class of 2020: “Staying away from strangers, especially the ones that are coughing everywhere.”

Xela Gunvalson, Class of 2021: “I don’t really go to the store; my mom gets the groceries for us. If I have to go out to get something, quick I wear a mask and have hand sanitizer in the car.”
