LCG: Mask distribution and donations in Lafayette Parish

Local

LAFAYETTE, La. (LCG)- Lafayette Consolidated Government is providing free cloth face masks to Lafayette Parish citizens while supplies last.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, face coverings may help prevent people who have COVID-19 from unknowingly spreading the virus to others.

The CDC recommends that people wear cloth face coverings in public settings and when around people who don’t live in the same household, especially when social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.

“Face masks can play an important role in preventing the spread of COVID-19,” Lafayette Mayor-President Josh Guillory said in a statement Friday. “I agree with the governor that a mask mandate will be difficult to enforce, but I am committed to ensuring our residents have access to masks. As always, I strongly encourage using a mask when social distancing isn’t possible.”

Beginning Monday, July 13, 2020, Lafayette Parish residents can pick up masks at City-Parish Hall and five Lafayette Public Library locations. Please limit to one mask per person, or a five-mask limit if picking up for other family members.
