Gloucester Teens Create Fun and Fashionable Mask Campaign!

September 11, 2020

Maria Oliveira is a 16 yr old Junior at Gloucester High School - who, as a part of the Gloucester Youth Leadership Council - was concerned that people of all ages weren't following the mandate to wear masks... so she and a few group members decided to do something about it. 

Completely youth created, the "Just Wear It. Masks Are For Everyone" poster campaign is a Gloucester-based initiative to promote the mandate to wear face coverings to help mitigate the spread of the novel coronavirus pandemic. Gloucester encourages the wearing of face coverings inside essential businesses and where a 6-foot distance from others cannot be maintained.

Anyone interested in learning more about how to get involved with the face covering campaign and, or the Gloucester Youth Leadership Council may contact Jess Scola at
