Today the Minister of Health the Hon. Kim Wilson JP MP announced the winners of the Cup Match Mask Mania competition, which was organized by the Department of Health.
Minister Wilson said, "Events like today’s are a unique way for us to still celebrate our beloved Cup Match while also highlighting the importance of practicing good health behaviours, such as mask-wearing, which help to protect us from the threat of COVID-19.
"International health organizations around the world agree that cloth face coverings are a critical tool in the fight against COVID-19 that could reduce the spread of the disease, preventing people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus to others.
"Thank you to my incredible team at the Department of Health for finding such a creative way to promote the importance of wearing a face covering while also honoring the Cup Match tradition. Cup Match Mask Mania certainly builds on the fun, competitive spirit of Cup Match. I’d also like to give a big ‘thank you’ to the public for submitting so many creative and beautiful masks in support of their Cup Match team."
