Masks & Face Coverings Guidance
Cloth face coverings can be fashioned from household items or made at home from common materials at low-cost, and should be used as a public health measure, beyond social distancing.
Individuals must procure, fashion, or otherwise obtain face coverings and wear them when they are in a public and are:
- within six feet of distance from other individuals; or
- in a situation or setting where they are unable to maintain six feet of distance from other individuals.
- When wearing cloth face coverings in public settings, where social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies), especially in areas of significant community transmission, you should:
- Make sure that they fit snugly and cover their nose and mouth.
- Not become complacent with other protective measures.
- Do not touch the cloth covering or face.
- Continue to be vigilant with thorough and frequent hand washing with soap and water, or alcohol-based hand sanitizer of 60%+ alcohol.
- Practice respiratory etiquette and cover your coughs or sneezes.
- Practice social distancing – even when wearing masks.
- Stay home and help flatten the curve!
While cloth face coverings may not prevent the wearer from becoming infected, they might help slow spread from people who have the virus and are unaware.

Both Tom and I want to thank all the shooters that came to Long Island to shoot with us during the year and I hope they will be able to join us next year.
You guys put on a nice match. This year was a bummer. I hope to shoot your course next year. 15 lanes does help to spread shooters out but a little more work. We all hope 2021 will be a lot more fun for all of us.
Here is a link to videos of Tom Holland shooting the entire match.
Enjoyed shooting the course. See you all next year. Happy Thanksgiving!
Thanks, Leo, didn't realize that you filmed THAT much!!! I'll try to go over the video I shot of you as well, I couldn't stabilize it as good as you did.
