CoroMasks: Facial Covering Masks for Coronado Project Update


We have our first batch of masks coming on Tuesday, April 7. It will be “Seniors Only” for those age 65+, Coronado residents only.

We have to require a Coronado I.D. because our numbers are limited and we don’t want to entice people from out of town and break the spirit of staying at home.

If you are a senior and need a family member to pick up the masks for you that works too, but we ask everyone to be honest and support our community.

Thank you again to all of our generous donors who have made this effort possible. Special thanks to Heather and Kit Haas of the FiveLoaves~TwoFish clothing store for helping us obtain the masks and for providing the point of distribution at the store.

Remember, you only need one mask and still should not go out unless absolutely necessary for food and medicine.

Mask Care: Wash/Dry on hot cycle regularly.

Sunday, April 5 CoroMask project update:

  • We have hit $5k in donations
  • That’s enough for more than 1,000 masks (they cost $4 apiece)
  • Masks are coming this week, the current plan is distribution on Friday beginning at 11am at FiveLoaves TwoFish, 1150 Orange Ave.
  • We hope to have a Seniors Only Day ahead of time.
  • Masks will be given to Coronado residents only (ID required), so we don’t entice visitors during the statewide Stay at Home order. 1-2 masks per person depending on circumstance.

What began on April 3 with the help of some wonderful friends here in Coronado, we launched an effort to provide “CoroMasks” free of charge (donation optional) to local residents.

Masks are extremely helpful for slowing the spread of COVID to others. Even if we have no symptoms, we might have the virus. This way we respect all with whom we might have contact when doing essential grocery shopping, getting takeout, going to the pharmacy, doctor appointments, etc.

A FaceBook fundraiser was launched to ramp up production at Fiveloaves Twofish in Coronado. Fiveloaves will be the distribution point for the masks, the first batch of which should be ready within a week.
