The Clark County Emergency Management Agency will be distributing free masks to residents this week.

The EMA will host three distribution events this week in Springfield. At the events, each household will receive a box of 50 disposable face masks.

“As the vaccine continues to roll out in Clark County, wearing a mask and maintaining social distance is still the most important thing you can do to slow the spread of COVID,” EMA Director Michelle Clements-Pitstick said. “It’s important Clark County residents continue to stay vigilant in wearing masks according to CDC requirements until we reach the finish line in battling the virus.”
