Local Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) members and Fire Districts of Lincoln County have scheduled a second drive thru pick up of free face coverings for Tuesday, June 30, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Provided face coverings are disposable and similar to medical masks, which are durable but not recommended for washing. An earlier drive thru pick-up event was held on June 13, where over 17,000 face coverings were distributed to the public.

Instructions to Receive Face Coverings for Your Household:

- Go to one of the locations listed on Tuesday, June 30, follow posted directions at pick up locations.

- When you reach the front of the line, put your car in park, stay in your car.

- Hold up fingers to show number of face coverings you need.

- Roll down your window to receive your bag of face coverings.

- Drive away – the CERT and Fire Team Members will not be able to answer questions.


An informational handout on face covering use will be provided in your bag.
