OSWEGO — Mayor Billy Barlow announced today the city of Oswego has submitted a video to participate in New York State’s “Wear A Mask!” campaign, announced by Governor Andrew Cuomo earlier this month.  

The campaign is designed to encourage people to submit videos to encourage, support and promote wearing a mask in public to battle COVID-19 in New York State.  

The video, starring Mayor Billy Barlow and Mr. Apollo Avery, details creative and funny reasons people should wear a mask, in addition to preventing the spread of COVID-19.  

“The ‘Wear A Mask!’ video campaign is a great, fun way to encourage people to wear a mask and the City of Oswego is proud to participate by submitting our ad.  We ask Oswego residents take a minute to enjoy our video and hope our video sends an effective message to residents on the importance of wearing a mask during our battle against COVID-19,” said Barlow.  

“I’d like to thank Apollo Avery and Susan Gentile for starring in our video, along with Kyle Ridlon Productions who helped produce our video,” Barlow said.
