TUCKER, Ga. (August 11, 2020) – Leadership with the City of Tucker, in an effort to continue to protect the community from the spread of the coronavirus, announced Tuesday that they have acquired an additional 21,000 masks to be distributed to residents and businesses. Any Tucker resident seeking a mask can get a pack mailed to them by registering via phone, email or the City website.
“In our previous mask giveaways, we drew huge crowds and long lines, something we are trying to avoid this time around,” said Assistant City Manager John McHenry, who is overseeing the program. “This time we are excited to allow folks to register from the comfort of their homes and a few days later their masks will arrive in their mailboxes.
“This is all part of Tucker’s #maskmovement campaign, as we strongly encourage the use of masks for the protection of our citizens and the community.”
Tucker has been at the forefront of the mask movement, already distributing 13,000 face coverings to residents, restaurants and care facilities across the City. This new batch of masks will be split between medical grade and disposable masks. Applicants can choose which type of mask they want to receive.
