A Mask for Everyone Initiative
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.
