CHAIRMAN JONES AND THE BOC ROLL OUT PLAN TO MAKE AVAILABLE 20,000 MASKS TO DOUGLAS COUNTY CITIZENS


Douglasville, GA - Douglas County Board of Commissioner Chair, Dr. Romona Jackson Jones and the Board of Commissioners have rolled out a plan where 20,000 masks are being made available for the citizens of Douglas County. "I'm pleased to announce as part of my educational campaign efforts to reduce the spread of the coronavirus in Douglas County, we now have 20,000 cloth masks available at various county government facilities for free to the citizens of Douglas County," Chairman Jones said. "These cloth face coverings are free and were provided to us by the Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency.

"Instead of just one central location in Douglas County for citizens who may not have access to a mask but need one for themselves or family, we have coordinated to have the masks dispersed at various county government locations," Rick Martin, Director of Communications and Community Relations said. "Masks can be obtained at the Courthouse, Connect Douglas Transportation Center, Boundary Aquatic Center, county libraries and Deer Lick Park Recreation Center while supplies last.

Proof that residents live in Douglas County are required before receiving masks.

In late June the Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency was releasing three million cloth face coverings in July to 39 county emergency management agencies across the state.

The cloth face coverings are washable and reusable and will help protect citizens.
