Utah governor Gary R. Herbert announced that a free face mask will be given to the state's residents who don't have one already as part of a program called "A Mask for Every Utahn."
The state of Utah, along with an arrangement with the Utah Manufacturers Association and Cotopaxi, bought two million face masks for Utah residents who don't have one, who can't purchase one or are unable to make one or get one from someone else. Funding for the project came from the federal CARES Act.
Up to six face masks can be mailed to each residential address, and face masks can also be provided for free through local emergency management centers, nonprofits that serve the homeless and deliver meals to the hungry and through participating grocery stores, according to the project's website.
Any Utah resident can request a mask at coronavirus.utah.gov/mask.
