Seattle music lovers can now protect themselves while representing their favorite radio station.
Alternative Rock station 107.7 The End has begun selling face masks that benefit the Washington State Nurses Association, “an organization that helps provide education and resources that allow nurses to reach their full professional potential and focus on caring for patients.”
Each $18 machine-washable mask features the classic 107.7 blue, white, and green color scheme and has a filter pocket ready for you to slip in additional protection.
Seattle and King County Health Officer Dr. Jeff Duchin along with King County Executive Dow Constantine and Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan urge Seattleites to use face coverings over their nose and mouth at all indoor or confined outdoor public settings.
Masks are encouraged in grocery stores, restaurants and retail, indoor workplaces, buses, rideshares, and taxis. Face coverings need not be worn outside unless physical distancing cannot be practiced, such as at farmers markets.
“We must ask people to take the steps, informed by public health, to once again change everyday life in service of the health of all. By doing this one thing – wearing a face covering in public settings – we can do more to protect our most vulnerable, and increase the odds that the limited resumption of activities will be successful,” said Constantine in a media release.
