The locations where residents can pick up those face coverings from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. will be:
- Springview Government Center, 3130 E. Main St., Springfield
- Tecumseh High School, 9830 W. National Rd., New Carlisle
The distribution is a partnership between the Clark County Commissioners, the City of Springfield, the county’s Emergency Management Agency and the Clark County Sheriff’s Office.
Gov. Mike DeWine announced on Thursday that Clark County had been placed on a watch-list for counties that are at risk of moving to purple - the highest level - on the Ohio Public Health Advisory system that tracks the spread of the coronavirus.
Clark county is currently classified as red on that system. Both the county and the City of Springfield have recently spent $20,000 using federal relief dollars to provide face coverings to local residents and organizations.
Earlier this week, the county’s Emergency Management Agency distributed more than 36,000 masks to several local agencies.
