How to Get a Face Covering
Arlington County partnered with nearly 70 community organizations to distribute over 40,000 face coverings through churches, synagogues, non-profits and PTAs, ensuring masks for individuals in our community most at risk or who may not otherwise have access. We are not able to provide a mask to every County resident. If you’d like to support a local business by purchasing masks, please see the list of participating businesses below.
