Today’s first distribution, for seniors, was a wonderful challenge and we learned so much… First thing being there is such demand that we ran out of masks in an instant!

100 more masks were obtained and another senior distribution will take place on Wednesday for those who missed out today. The Coronado Police Department and Coronado High School are helping now, so it will move to the CHS parking lot in the 800 block of 7th Street. This way, everyone can stay in their cars be handed the masks through your open car window.

Only give 1-2 per car, so please be sure you truly need them. If you have any sort of cloth mask now we ask you stick with that, washing it regularly on a hot cycle.

Coronado seniors, 65+ only please. Our distribution for all ages will be Friday, 11am, at the same location (CHS parking lot on 7th). Thank you everyone!
