Lincoln County businesses will soon be able to pick up face coverings for their employees, family members and customers at no cost. The State of Oregon has provided a large number of face coverings to Lincoln County, distribution of which began through the chambers of commerce in Lincoln County on Monday, June 29.
The provided face coverings are disposable and similar to medical masks, which are durable but not recommended for washing. Face coverings will be provided through the chambers on a first-come, first-served basis until the provided supply from the county has been exhausted.
To pick up the face coverings, Lincoln County businesses can simply fill out an online form, where they will be asked for the number of face coverings needed for employees, volunteers, family members and customers or clients who may not have their own face coverings.
Once the form has been submitted, a confirmation email will be sent, along with information on what time and the nearest location to pick up the face coverings. Participating locations include the Lincoln City Chamber and Depoe Bay Chamber in the north county area, the Newport Chamber in the central county area, the Waldport and Yachats Chambers in the South County area and the Toledo Chamber and City of Siletz in the East County area.
