“As we all learn to wear masks when we’re heading into a public setting, we’re starting to see progress in defeating the spread of COVID-19, and this partnership between Safeway and UFCW 21 will help get more masks into the hands of people throughout King County,” said Executive Dow Constantine in a press release.
Since May 18, all King County residents have been required to don face masks in public areas.
“Wearing a face covering can help prevent the spread of infection to others by blocking infectious droplets from spreading when someone with the infection coughs, sneezes, and speaks. Individuals can be infected and contagious before or even without developing symptoms,” stated a media release from the City of Seattle.
