City of Winona creates new campaign to encourage residents to wear masks

Chris Meyer and Paul Schollmeier

Chris Meyer, 1st District Winona County commissioner, shared a picture on social media of her and Paul Schollmeier, at-large Winona city council member, wearing masks as a part of the Wear One for Winona campaign.

The city of Winona has introduced a new campaign to encourage residents to continue wearing masks while visiting public places.

The campaign — titled Wear One for Winona — will feature photos and videos, posted online, of city officials and other residents wearing their masks throughout the city.

The campaign will emphasize that the people are wearing the masks to “slow the spread of COVID-19, protect themselves and their neighbors, keep local businesses open, and many other reasons,” a release from the city said.

If people share pictures of themselves online and post #wearoneforwinona in the caption, they will be entered into a giveaway for a $25 certificate to a local business.

To see entries, visit the city’s Facebook, Instagram or Twitter pages.

This campaign was created by Winona’s Community Response Team.

The campaign comes after a rise in the county’s COVID-19 positive cases, with 39 new cases in June.
