Fiscal Court distributing protective masks to small businesses at low cost
17 Apr 2020
Qualifying businesses with 50 or fewer employees are now able to receive “N95-type filtered masks” due to the efforts of Daviess County Fiscal Court. Businesses can receive a limited quantity of masks, and distribution arrangements will be scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis.
These masks are not surgical N95 masks, but are FDA-grade filtered masks that are very similar in appearance and function, according to Judge-Executive Al Mattingly.
“I said, ‘You know, small businesses are having a hard time finding PPE [personal protective equipment],’” he said. “I think it’s our responsibility to try and help the people comply with [the regulations outlined by the CDC and state government].”
