Town hands out second round of masks


The town of Taos is working to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the community by handing out masks to businesses. 

From 8:30 a.m. to noon Friday (June 26) town officials will be set up once again at Coronado Hall at 120 Civic Plaza drive to hand out masks for the business community. The town has allocated masks through emergency funds and will be handing out 50 per business. 

In the town’s previous event on June 12, officials handed out over 5,000 masks for the local business community for their use. 

The town of Taos remains under an emergency health declaration by the town council and is adhering to the emergency health order set down by Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham in an effort to control the pandemic.

Lujan Grisham’s order mandates masks be worn by all employees, especially those coming into contact with customers. In addition, masks are mandatory for those out in public spaces. 

Town officials are asking those who stop by to pick up masks to adhere to social distancing practices by staying six feet apart. 

The cloth masks are reusable and washable.
