Free face masks to be distributed Oct. 15

Clatsop County and local partners are again organizing the distribution of free face masks to the public.

Masks will be handed out at no cost at multiple locations around the county on Thursday, Oct. 15.

This is the fifth distribution event coordinated by the Clatsop County Emergency Management office.

The KN95 adult face coverings are courtesy of the State of Oregon, which has made them available to county and tribal governments for distribution where most needed in their communities.

Cities, fire districts and Community Emergency Response Teams (CERTs) will host the drive-thru handout event between 4 and 6 p.m. at these locations:

Elsie-Vinemaple Fire Station, 42644 Loyd Lane, Seaside
Seaside Fire Station, 150 S. Lincoln, Seaside
Astoria Aquatic Center, 1997 Marine Drive, Astoria
Cannon Beach City Hall, 163 E. Gower
Knappa Fire Station, 43114 Hillcrest Loop
Warrenton Fire Station, 225 S. Main Ave.
Gearhart Fire Station, 670 Pacific Way

To get a mask or masks, go to one of the listed locations and follow the posted directions:

When you get to the front of the line, stay in your car
Hold up fingers to show the number of masks you need
Roll down your window to receive your bag of masks

The masks will come with an informational handout on the proper use of face coverings.
