The Masks are Medicine campaign began at the end of July as the number of cases in Riverside County and throughout California were spiking. The county is closing out the campaign in which officials distributed 10 million masks in 30 days, using local nonprofit groups, schools, faith-based organizations, and businesses as the main distributors. Masks were also given to those who were tested at one of the county’s 14 coronavirus testing sites.

Those who received the masks were asked to pledge to wear it and encourage others to do so. Af of today, more than 1,100 have taken the mask pledge online by going to pledgetofightCOVID.com. Organizations distributing masks are also handing out hardcopy pledge forms.

“We’re happy to partner with the county to provide a location for residents to pick up masks to assist in stopping the spread of COVID-19,” said Beth Gomez, vice president of Business Services at MSJC.
