City of Charleston Receives Mask Donation from the United States Conference of Mayors

Today, Mayor Amy Shuler Goodwin announced the City of Charleston received a donation of 9,600 masks from the U.S. Conference of Mayors. The “Masks for Mayors” initiative, in partnership with Bella+Canvas and City of Columbia Mayor Steve K. Benjamin, provided over 1 million non-medical grade masks to cities across the country at no cost. This generous donation is in response to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidance that everyone should wear a face covering to slow the spread of COVID-19.

“We appreciate the face coverings donated to us by the U.S. Conference of Mayors. These masks will allow City workers to feel safe when out in the field, interacting with their co-workers and the public,” said Mayor Amy Shuler Goodwin.

All City employees received five of the washable face coverings. Additional masks will be in City offices for members of the public who need to visit offices in the future and may not have a face covering.
