Stamford Announces Mask Distribution Sites for the Public

STAMFORD, Conn. — The City of Stamford’s Emergency Response Management team will hold mask distributions for residents every day for the next five days as part of the City’s ongoing initiative to provide more masks to staff and residents in Stamford.

“Stamford’s initial priority has been to provide emergency response providers with personal protective equipment, but the goal has always been to get the public access to these supplies to stop the spread of this virus,” said Mayor David Martin. “Residents and workers who must go out in public will now have access to this pipeline of supplies through these sites and distribution initiatives led by local organizations including Stamford’s local NAACP, Bethel AME, Building One Community and others. While masks help prevent transmission, I encourage residents who do not need to be out in public to continue to stay home.”

More personal protective equipment (PPE) has become available across the region, allowing the City to order sufficient supplies for emergency response providers, and other essential employees working everyday across our City.
