SHELBY COUNTY KIDS MASK UP!
The Shelby County Emergency Management & Homeland Security Agency would like you to help us “Mask Up Our Kids”. Children are our most precious cargo. We realize this pandemic has caused hardships for a lot of citizens throughout Shelby County. Therefore, our agency would like to help you by providing masks for the children of Shelby County.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends all people two years of age, and older wear a mask in public settings and when around people who don’t live in your household, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
With September being designated as National Preparedness Month, the Shelby County Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency has partnered with the Shelby County Health Department, Shelby County Fire Department, Memphis Fire Department, the cities of Arlington, Bartlett, Collierville, Germantown, Lakeland, and Millington to give away children’s masks. These masks will fit the faces of our little ones.
