As part of on-going efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the City of La Crosse will be giving out free, reusable face masks that meet CDC recommendations to the public Saturday, Oct. 17.
“Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of La Crosse has been focused on ensuring our
community is as safe as possible” Mayor Tim Kabat said. “We are continuing with this effort by offering masks that meet CDC recommendations to all members of our community at no cost to them. Through grant funding, we have the ability to do this and I personally feel it is important to empower our community to follow this common-sense approach to prevent the spread.”
The event will be set up as a drive-through pick-up to minimize direct contact. Vehicles can enter on Myrick Park Drive and follow signs Saturday from 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. One mask will be provided per member of each household with a limit of five masks per household.
