“We’re so happy to see people want them and want to wear them. We just hope they take it seriously and actually wear them. Because, when you wear them, you’re protecting others and when they wear them they’re protecting you,” Mallory Cooke, public information officer for the health department, said.

The health department confirmed they had given out Tuesday’s supply of masks around 12:15 p.m.

They are expecting another shipment of masks and will have another giveaway when they get them.
