Public Health is hosting multiple giveaways throughout the month to help prevent the spread of coronavirus and help get masks to people who may not have access to them.

“The demand is extremely high,” said Gilbert Ghand of Public Health earlier this week. “Wherever we go people need them.”

“We just want to make sure everyone realizes how important wearing the masks are because it cuts down the spread of COVID between people,” said said Dan Suffoletto, public information supervisor at Public Health. “If both people are wearing masks it will significantly cut down the spread.”
