Masks for Seniors

Masks for Seniors Banner 1

On April 18, Governor Hogan ordered face masks or face coverings to be worn in Maryland whenever someone is in a retail and food establishment, laundromat, or on public transportation. Given this order, and the fact that the CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, we expect that Marylanders will be wearing masks for some time to come. 

While seniors are being encouraged to stay home and avoid potential exposure to the coronavirus, we know that this is not always possible, and we want to make sure you have the protection you need if you must venture out. The City of Bowie is proud to partner with local organizations and individuals who are helping to make or provide masks to us for distribution to seniors.
