#MaskUpDP Program Encourages Residents & Visitors to Wear Masks

The City of Dana Point in partnership with the Dana Point Chamber of Commerce and Visit Dana Point have launched an information campaign #MaskUpDP to encourage actions to help slow the spread of coronavirus.

The program includes decals and signs for use by local businesses to remind people to: wear a mask in shops and public spaces when you can’t keep a 6’ distance; wash your hands; maintain a 6’ distance from those not in your household; and to get outside. The City and Chamber will be distributing the materials to local businesses at no charge.

Luckily one of the best ways to reduce the spread is to be outdoors and a benefit to living in Dana Point is the diversity of outdoor activities that are available for residents and visitors. “We live in such a great place. From our beaches to trails and parks, there is so much to do. Plus many of our businesses are getting creative in how they are using outdoor space to service their customers – and the City is doing what it can to support innovative ideas that still encourage a safe environment,” stated Dana Point Mayor Richard Viczorek.

“To slow the spread of the Coronavirus and support an open and thriving economy, we must all continue practicing public safety measures – including wearing a mask when in public,” said Dana Point Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Vickie McMurchie. “We are all understandably eager to get back to ‘normal’, and a simple endeavor like wearing a face mask will not only show that you support local merchants, but also ensure that businesses continue to remain open.”

The city and chamber will be sharing more information on their social media platforms, as well as inviting local business leaders to share their message about #MaskUpDP. Follow the City of Dana Point’s Instagram and Facebook and the Dana Point Chamber of Commerce Instagram and Facebook.
