Free Masks for New Orleanians

By: Caroline Hebert

New Orleans City Council Councilmember-At-Large Helena Moreno is teaming up with organizations and community partners to give out 10,000 Hanes facial coverings

to residents citywide, this Friday, May 29, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., by drive or walk-up.

"Wearing a mask helps keep our neighbors and friends safe, so I'm partnering with some of our community's most energetic and civic-minded organizations to make it easy to #maskup," Councilmember Moreno said. "We've made great progress against this pandemic, which has allowed our city to slowly open up. But to sustain that progress, everyone must do their part to keep each other safe and healthy. As the CDC notes, masks and social distancing are the strongest tools available to all of us to keep our positive momentum going."
