It goes without saying that the need for cloth masks is at an all-time high.  To promote donations and to coordinate efforts, St. Louis County and area fire departments have partnered to collect cloth masks on an ongoing basis at a variety of locations throughout the Northland.  The donated masks will be delivered to congregate living settings throughout the county where they are in high-demand and in constant use.

Masks can be dropped off at any time at fire halls in Duluth, Ely, Grand Lake Township, Hermantown, Hibbing, Lakewood Township, Proctor, and Virginia.  Staff from St. Louis County will collect the masks and coordinate delivery to long-term care facilities.
