N95 Masks Available for Residents with Respiratory Issues

Mendocino County will hold a “drive through” event for the public to pick up N95 masks in Ukiah and Willits. There are 500 masks available at each location for people with respiratory issues, such as asthma (limit one per person). The Ukiah event begins at 3:3O PM today, at Frank Seek School, 1060 North Bush Street in Ukiah. The Willits event will be held tomorrow at 9:30 AM, in front of the Willits Library, 390 E. Commercial Street. An N95 respirator mask is a respiratory protective device that can protect your lungs from wildfire smoke. The N95 masks available at the events are reusable.
