The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to buy and give away three million cloth face masks in the next 90 days.
Supervisors Sheila Kuehl and Hilda Solis co-authored the motion as part of county efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
“It’s a proven strategy, along with (social) distancing … and washing our hands and washing our hands and washing our hands,” Kuehl said. “We want to eliminate any financial barriers people might face that would keep them from having a mask and using it.”
