Masks Available to City of Racine Residents at Racine Fire Stations
With mask ordinance in place, fire stations help ensure access
City of Racine – With the City of Racine’s face coverings ordinance back in effect, everyone above the age of 4 will be expected to wear masks while they are indoor public spaces or using any form of public transportation. Additional information about the face coverings ordinance can be found here: https://www.racinecoronavirus.org/mask-ordinance/
To help ensure that the public has access to masks, the Racine Fire Department will have masks available, free of charge, for pickup by residents beginning this Monday, September 20th, each weekday from 9 am to 4 pm at the following locations:
- 810 8th Street
- 2430 Northwestern Avenue
- 1107 Lombard Avenue
- 3829 Washington Avenue
- 2430 Blaine Avenue
- 2101 16th Street
The Racine County Emergency Operations Center donated thousands of masks to the City to support this effort.
“I thank the Racine County EOC for donating the masks, and the Racine Fire Department for the continued support in helping to once again make masks available to the public at no cost. As cases continue to rise and we remain in the “high” category for community transmission, we want to make sure our residents have access to masks so that we work together to collectively slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community,” said Dottie-Kay Bowersox, the Public Health Administrator for the City of Racine.
