The Douglas County Board of Commissioners has acquired personal protective equipment, including 50,000 disposable masks, from the Southwestern Oregon Workforce Investment Board.
It’s giving them out for free to individuals and businesses on a first-come, first-served basis.
Sanitizing wipes are also available.
The county received a similar donation from the investment board in September and Douglas County Commissioner Chris Boice requested more because outlets were running low on supplies.
The new masks and wipes will be available at 13 locations around the county, including city halls, chambers of commerce and businesses.
Umpqua Dairy Products stepped in to help, Boice said in a press release.
“On behalf of the Board of Commissioners, I would like to extend a big thank you to Umpqua Dairy Products Company. They stepped up to support this project by generously offering to transport and deliver the pallets of masks from SOWIB’s warehouse in North Bend, so we could get the PPE supplies to Douglas County residents as swiftly as possible,” Boice said.
