Homeland Security Gets Thousands of Free Face Masks

Written by on December 16, 2020

Wearing a face mask is a matter of homeland security – and now you can secure your face for free.

The Park County Office of Homeland Security received a big delivery: over 13,000 face masks, courtesy of the Wyoming Office of Homeland Security. The masks themselves are cloth and can be washed and reused.

Jack Tatum, Director of Park County Homeland Security, has distributed the masks to the following locations throughout Park County:

  • Clark Rec Center
  • Meeteetse Town Hall
  • Cody Chamber of Commerce
  • Powell Chamber of Commerce

Masks are available — at no charge — for both children and adults.

Getting a new mask is never a bad idea. Park County’s current mask mandate remains in effect until at least Jan. 8, and Wyoming’s mask mandate until Jan. 4.

Everyone 11 years and older must wear face masks in public spaces throughout Wyoming for the rest of 2020 and the beginning of 2021. While there’s no official word from either state or county officials, it’s possible that both mandates will be extended if COVID-19 cases and hospitalization continue to climb.

If you have any questions about Park County Homeland Security and/or the services provided to the community please call Director Jack Tatum at 307-527-1860.
