The Community Emergency Response Team of Cannon Beach was part of an area-wide effort to distribute 3,500 face masks to the citizens of Cannon Beach, according to the city.
At last Tuesday’s meeting, the council authorized the city manager to approach the Clatsop county manager to ask the Governor to add Clatsop to the group of counties requiring face masks, said Assistant City Manager Colleen Dick.
On Monday, Gov. Kate Brown extended the wearing of face masks mandate in indoor public spaces to all counties in the state beginning July 1, according to a state press release.
As of 7 a.m. June 29, Clatsop County had 48 COVID-19 cases, of which 46 had recovered and no active cases, as stated in a city briefing.
City Emergency Manager Rick Hudson said Monday they delivered the masks “to citizens in vehicles, walk ups and on bikes.”
“Special thank you to Clatsop County Emergency Management, CB CERT, CB public works, CB police department, CB Fire, and the CB Chamber of Commerce,” Hudson said.
