A Mask for Everyone is an initiative to ensure that individuals and families - specifically racially, ethnically and culturally diverse communities - have access to:

  • Free masks to reduce transmission of COVID-19.
  • Accurate information about the importance of wearing a mask.
  • Instructions on proper use of masks.

Together, we want to help protect our residents and keep our communities safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
