If you just can’t get your hands on one of the 10 million free face masks Riverside County is handing out during its Masks Are Medicine campaign, you might have another option.
It comes from U-S Senator Bernie Sanders and more than 30 of his closest pals on Capitol Hill.
Sanders’ plan is called Masks For All, and yes, your masks could be in the mail.
The idea is to use the U S Postal Service to deliver 3 reusable face masks to every person in the country. That would be about 1 billion masks. The masks would also be delivered to prisoners, people in homeless shelters, old people in assisted living facilities, and students in college dorms–although there are no students in college dorms right now as everyone is doing distance learning via computers
You would also be able to just pick up your free mask at post offices, drug stores, schools, bus stations, even Covid-19 test sites. Healthcare workers would get their masks at work.
Right now the plan is just a proposal.
