Until vaccinations help get the pandemic under control, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) officially endorses face mask wearing in multi-person environments. It is now federal law that masks must be worn at all federal properties. This is in light of the extensive evidence that the virus spreads between people in close proximity—either by speaking, coughing, or sneezing—and even if those people are not exhibiting symptoms. This is especially crucial in situations where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain in crowded public areas.
If your organization chooses to make a mask donation, the Mission gratefully accepts them.
You may drop off (or mail) your masks at the Men’s Shelter at 65 Massachusetts Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20001.
