Irvine offers free masks to encourage residents to cover up

To make it easier for residents to comply with local face covering rules, Irvine gave away boxes of disposable masks to residents at a drive-up event on Saturday, Aug. 8, at the Civic Center.

Donated by developer FivePoint Holdings, the masks handed out on Saturday were the city’s latest salvo intended to stop the spread of the coronavirus in the community. City officials recently gave 100,000 masks to the Irvine Unified School District for students and staff, and they plan to provide masks for child care centers, seniors, emergency responders and businesses.



Irvine is also the only city in Orange County to run its own COVID-19 testing program for city employees and anyone who lives or works in the city.

“Since this crisis began, the health and safety of our community has been our top priority,” Irvine Mayor Christina Shea said in a news release.
