Lincoln County to distribute more face masks

Lincoln County will once again distribute face masks to county citizens to help curb the spread of coronavirus COVID-19.

The masks to be distributed are surgical-type KN95 masks, which may fit slightly differently from N95 masks, but function in the same manner.

The masks were provided to the county by the Mississippi Emergency Management Association.

Emergency Management Director Clifford Galey announced Monday that the community distribution will begin at 9 a.m. Saturday at the Hansel King Sportsplex on Beltline Drive in Brookhaven.

Persons claiming masks must have a Lincoln County license plate and four masks will be provided per vehicle.
