CALGARY (660 NEWS) — If you were unable to receive a free mask through a fast-food drive-thru, that option is now available again on the menu starting Monday, July 13.
The Alberta government is making disposable masks available at McDonald’s, A&W, and Tim Hortons locations to help limit the spread of COVID-19.
Back in June, 14 million masks were handed out through the program at select restaurants and another six million went to different municipalities, senior groups, Indigenous partners, and places of worship. Monday another 20 million masks will be handed out.
For people unable to receive a mask through a drive-thru, they are still available by calling 211 or through one of many municipal or community providers.
An update on weekend COVID-19 numbers will also be provided by the government Monday afternoon.
