The St. Louis County Department of Public Health continues to distribute masks and as of today has distributed more than 500,000 across the county. In partnership with the YMCA, 22,000 masks will be distributed to kids at summer camps to take home to share with their families. Many other organizations will pick up masks this Friday. Among them: MapleGOOD volunteers intend to distribute 4,000 masks at bus stops in Maplewood, and the Museum of Transportation will be distributing 10,000 masks to staff. Taking proper protective measures continues to be a critical step in keeping our community safe and DPH is grateful for partnerships and conversations to move this initiative forward.
