The Governor’s Office of Economic Development has provided 75,000 additional facemasks to Moab and Grand County.
The masks are available to local businesses and visitors to the area just as Grand County and the Southeast Utah Health Department are expected to begin requiring residents and visitors to wear facial coverings in public places, according to a statement from City of Moab spokesperson Lisa Church.
Local businesses may pick up free face coverings at the Canyonlands Copy Center, 375 S. Main St., in Moab. The Moab Information Center and the National Park Service will distribute face coverings to area visitors.
“The City of Moab and the Moab Area Travel Council thank GOED for this generous donation and the contribution it makes to help protect local residents, businesses, and visitors during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Church.
