List: Where to get free face masks

Mecklenburg County giving away 2 million free masks for residents.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Mecklenburg County and Atrium Health are giving away 2 million free face masks to residents starting Friday. The full list of locations across the Charlotte area is below.

“They decrease the spread of coronavirus, they help everyone stay safe, they help us get our schools and our businesses back open in a healthy and safe manner and they help us recover,” said Dr. David Callaway, the Chief of Disaster Medicine for Atrium Health. He helped pass out dozens of free face masks on Friday morning.

Atrium Health, Mecklenburg County and several other community partners, including the Carolina Panthers and Charlotte Hornets, are pushing 2 million masks out into the community. The goal is to get masks in the hands of as many people as possible.

A statewide mask mandate has been in effect in North Carolina and now people celebrating the fourth at Myrtle Beach will have to wear one too.

“It’s Fourth of July weekend, we the people is not me the people. So, you're doing it for your neighbor, you're doing it for your grandmother. Wear a mask. It’s a simple thing to do, it’s safe, and the science is overwhelming that it decreases coronavirus spread,” said Callaway.

Across North Carolina, face masks  are required in public places, like restaurants, supermarkets and stores.
