This Saturday, July 18, from 7-10 a.m, the Mayor and Tucson City Council are holding the citywide Mask Up Tucson Free Mask Distribution Event. The event will be held at six locations throughout the city, one location in each Ward, and will be an opportunity for community members to obtain washable face coverings for themselves and their families.
Wearing a face covering is one of the best ways, along with proper hand washing and practicing social/physical distancing, to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The Mayor and Council are committed to keeping our community safe and have obtained 56,000 washable ear loop cloth masks to help those who have not been able to get them.
Each location will have 8,000 masks available and masks will be provided throughout the event or until they have all been distributed. The events will be set up as drive-throughs, where community members can drive up to the site, advise how many masks they need, and the masks will be passed on to them. Bike-up and walk-up requests are also welcome. Mayor and Council, their staff, and City staff supporting this event will be using appropriate PPE and social distancing while distributing the masks.
This is just an event for face covering/mask distribution. This is not a COVID-19 testing event.
