The Erie County Department of Health and Live Well Erie are extending an offer to houses of worship countywide to place orders for masks for use at holiday services and distribution to their worship communities.
ECDOH stated, “With many houses of worship expecting crowded services this holiday season, this offer for masks is intended to give an added layer of protection against respiratory illness, including COVID-19 and flu. It also supports the New York state and Erie County mask mandates for indoor public places.”
Churches, mosques, synagogues, temples and other faith communities can place orders using an online form at: https://bit.ly/ECMasks2021.
Houses of worship that are not able to access the online form can call 716-858-1928. Leave a message with name and phone number.
Orders will be fulfilled on a first-come, first-served basis through the end of 2021. Pickup instructions will be provided once the order is placed. Houses of worship that are not able to pick up the order may make other arrangements for delivery.
