Public Health Emergency - Leading a Nation Prepared
Wearing a cloth face mask, practicing social distancing, and washing your hands are good practices that help protect us and our neighbors from COVID-19 as our economy reopens. Whether you are going to work, making a trip to the market, or getting a check-up, it is important to wear a cloth face mask to protect the people in your community and prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Under “Project: America Strong”, the Federal Government is distributing cloth face masks to help slow the spread of COVID-19. The demand for these face coverings has exceeded supply. As a result,
we are no longer accepting new requests. We are currently assessing requests on hand and prioritizing delivery to support populations most susceptible to the disease. If you have submitted a request, we ask that you allow 10-15 business days for processing and determination on whether your order can be fulfilled.
Cloth face masks are now widely available from a number of vendors, and it is even easy to
make your own. By wearing a cloth face mask, you can help slow the spread of COVID-19 – and you might even save someone’s life.
