Community Development Staff Make Cloth Masks for Colleagues

Mesa County Community Development Support Services staff are being proactive and taking action to stop the spread of COVID-19 in our community. This week, they made masks for co-workers who interact with the public. Those masks are going to building inspectors, planners, as well as for themselves, as public-facing frontline staff.

Mesa County Public Health is asking everyone to wear face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are challenging to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies), especially in areas of significant community-based transmission. Read more about cloth face-covering guidelines, here.
