Face Masks for Farmworkers

— Written By

N.C. Cooperative Extension, Person County Center just received 500 masks for farmworkers through the efforts of the NC AgroMedicine Institute and NC Emergency Management. These are not surgical masks but are cloth masks that can be washed 15 times before discarding. They are recommended for use by workers in situations where social distancing is not possible – such as riding on a tobacco planter.

They are packaged in lots of 5. If you would like to get some of these masks, contact us at 336-599-1195.
