Laguna Beach Firefighters Deliver 600 Masks to City's Essential Workers
Monday morning, as part of our ongoing commitment to protect our local community and slow the spread of COVID-19, our Laguna Beach Firefighters teamed up with www.facemsk.co to provide 600 custom Laguna Beach Firefighter Association masks to our communities essential workers and most vulnerable.
Firefighters distributed masks to the following: Alternative Sleeping Location, Sally's Fund, Glennwood, Ralph's, Pavillions, Youth Shelter, the Laguna Beach Community Clinic, and local pharmacies.
Last week, the City Manager issued an emergency order that all employers of non-medical essential businesses require their workers wear cloth face coverings that shield their noses and mouths while at work to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
Requiring all Essential Workers wear facemarks is an additional level of protection for both our residents and those still on the frontlines providing food and critical services to our community.
