If you are practicing good social distancing skills and wearing a mask, you just might be rewarded for it. The Watford City Police Department, along with the Watford City/McKenzie County COVID-19 Response Team rewarded random people in the community last weekend for following recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The CDC stresses that people should maintain social distancing practices - staying six feet away from others in public - even if they are wearing a face mask or covering. The CDC encourages the use of cloth face covering to help slow the spread of the coronavirus. They recommend wearing face masks in public settings where other social distancing measures are challenging to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) -especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.
