Durham County Government is asking any interested nonprofit based in and serving the Durham community to complete a short form online to request reusable cloth face masks. Masks are to be used primarily for nonprofit staff and volunteers. Once mask requests are received and reviewed, County staff will contact nonprofit representatives with further instructions on scheduling a pickup appointment. Contactless, drive-through mask distribution events will take place at the Durham Convention Center on select dates through July. Masks will be available while supplies last. Submit an interest form at http://www.dconc.gov/nonprofitmasks. More information here: https://www.dconc.gov/Home/Components/News/News/7837/31?backlist=%2f
