Free Face Masks for Businesses; Chamber to Distribute
The Department of Employment & Economic Development (DEED) and the Governor will be sending 4 million masks to all Chambers statewide next week. They clearly stated that the masks are for businesses who primarily face the public. The masks are intended for customers and clients who come to your business and forgot their mask. The Apple Valley Chamber will be distributing to any Apple Valley business (both members and non-members) next Wednesday. See details below. Our Chamber was given 24,000 total masks. We will be giving every business a minimum of 200 masks which are pre-packaged. We will use our discretion for larger quantities for businesses that have higher levels of customer-facing interactions.
The Governor is trying to make the new mask EO easier for businesses in that fewer customers are turned away for not having a mask.
