A Mask for Everyone Initiative

Contact us

Ramsey County’s COVID-19 Racial Equity and Community Engagement Response Team (RECERT) is launching a new initiative - A Mask for Everyone - to ensure that individuals and families, specifically racially, ethnically and culturally diverse communities, have access to:

  • A homemade mask to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
  • Accurate and up-to-date information about the importance of wearing a mask.
  • Instructions on proper use and care of homemade masks.

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