20,000 masks available to community

Post Date:04/28/2020 12:43 PM

Update: 6:30 p.m. 4-29-20

All 20,000 masks have been distributed today. The site at San Angelo Stadium is now closed. Whenever we receive the next shipment, we will alert the public of the days and times in which we will be distributing masks.


Original release 

Disposable face masks will be available to the citizens of San Angelo from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 29 at San Angelo Stadium, located at 1919 Knickerbocker Rd. All masks are courtesy of Principal LED, Ener-Tel and the San Angelo Health Foundation. There will be 20,000 masks available out of the 100,000 ordered. The City does not have information on when the remaining masks will be available.

If all masks are handed out prior to 7 p.m. Wednesday, then the site will be closed. If all masks are not distributed on Wednesday, then the site will reopen at 7 a.m. Thursday and remain open until 7 p.m. or until all the masks are distributed.

There will be one entrance and one exit to the site off of Johnson Street. The entrance will be near the Central High School softball fields, so citizens are advised to travel northbound on Johnson to reach the entrance. Once at the site, there will be drive-thru distribution points so citizens do not have to get out of their vehicles.

The disposable masks that are being handed out are not N95 masks or respirator masks.

The location will be manned by City employees. Citizens will drive to the location and will have masks handed to them as they drive through. Contact between drivers and City staff will be as limited as possible. Walk-ups are not allowed. 

There will be a limit of seven masks per car/household. Please only request masks that you need for you and your household. This helps ensure as many people in the community as possible are able to receive masks.
