#Wear Your Mask
Wearing a face mask can help slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus from transmitting it to others.
How to Properly Wear Face Masks
Remember to wash your hands before and after putting on a face mask. Don’t touch your face or the mask after putting it on. Face masks should:
• fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
• be secured with ties or ear loops
• cover your nose and mouth and allow for breathing without restriction
Wearing a mask is more effective if worn properly!

Black History Moment
Maia Chaka becomes first Black woman to referee an NFL game in Panthers-Jets match-up

NFL history was made at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte on Sunday — and it wasn’t by someone wearing a jersey. Maia Chaka became the first Black woman to referee an NFL game on Sunday afternoon when she served as a line judge in the Carolina Panthers’ season opener with the New York Jets.
“I am honored to be selected as an NFL official,” Chaka said in an official statement earlier this off season. “But this moment is bigger than a personal accomplishment. It is an accomplishment for all women, my community and my culture.”
Chaka, 39, entered Sunday with an impressive resume: She earned her bachelor’s in education in 2006 from historically Black university Norfolk State University before beginning her teaching and officiating careers, according to a release from the NFL. She then began officiating college football, including games in the Pac-12 and Conference USA.
In 2014, Chaka was selected for the NFL’s Officiating Development Program, which identifies top collegiate officiating talent to expose them to some of the same experiences as NFL officials, working to determine if they have the ability to succeed as an NFL official.
