Wesley Church Providing Face Masks

Need a Face Mask? We Have Got You Covered!!

The Prayer Shawl Ministry and the Health and Wellness Committee have teamed up to provide cloth masks to our congregation.   The face masks will be available starting Thursday, April 30, and will be located in plastic storage containers (one labeled “Adult” and one labeled “Children”) located inside the Atrium entryway on the east side of the church (this is off the upper parking lot). If you are unable to stop by the church to get a mask, please contact Cindy Hare at 309/255-5080.  Individual masks will be stored in a zip lock bag along with a prayer to guide us through this unprecedented time of our lives.   The face masks should be washed before wearing the first time and after each use to help stop the spread of the virus.  If washing by hand, use warm to hot water with detergent and rub vigorously for 20 seconds.   If washing by machine, use warm water with detergent.  Masks can be air-dried or dried on a regular cycle in the dryer.

According to the CDC, individuals who wear face masks or any type of mouth/nose covering will protect others from spreading germs.  Please Note: It will not guarantee that you will not get COVID 19.  CDC is additionally advising the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others.  By wearing cloth face coverings, we are helping reserve the supply of surgical masks for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance.   According to the CDC, children 2 years and older should wear cloth face coverings to help stop the spread of the coronavirus as children are much more likely to spread the virus. 

Illinois Governor Pritzker and Dr. Ngozi Ezike, Director of Illinois Public Health, remind Illinois citizens in their daily press conferences the importance of social distancing, the practice of frequently washing hands, and wearing face coverings. The Governor has extended the Stay at Home order until May 31 and he is requiring that face masks be worn in a public place and when going into stores if one can’t maintain the social distancing guidelines of 6 feet.  Let’s be good public servants and wear our masks so that we can help lower the curve in Illinois!

Additional COVID 19 information can be located at coronavirus.Illinois.gov and cdc.gov.
