As we continue to face the challenge posed by the Coronavirus, we thought it might be fun to create a contest that serves two purposes: resolve a basic need, people wearing face masks, and to do something fun with your fellow employees.
As you are probably aware, there is a shortage of personal protection gear in the market especially face masks. We have been trying to buy these for the past six weeks with limited success. However, we continue to see more information on ways to make your own. That got us thinking that maybe we should have a “reusable face mask making contest”!
Although, all Employees of the company can participate in the Mask Challenge, we would like to allow the Prizes below to only be received by employees that are actively coming into the facility each day for work, as our goal is to get more people actively wearing their own reusable masks in the plant.
We will be utilizing some of the submissions in our newsletter, and our social postings for the company. Although, we encourage people to post socially, any posting that references the company name or MOORE, will need to be submitted and approved by management, before posting.
So here is what we decided to do. Introducing…

**DISCLAIMER: Experts advise that while the homemade alternatives can create a loose-fitting barrier that may mitigate the spread of some germs, they are not designed to block the spread of COVID-19. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says the best way to prevent illness is by avoiding exposure to the virus. It advises, above all else, for people to avoid person-to-person contact and practice social distancing, avoid touching the eyes, nose and mouth, cover coughs and sneezes with tissue or the inside of the elbow, and to frequently and thoroughly wash hands for at least 20 seconds.
