CHI and Lincoln Mayor to giveaway free back to school masks


LINCOLN, Neb – Before students head back to school next week, CHI Health Nebraska Heart will be handing out free face masks on Saturday, August 8, from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m., or while supplies last, at its southeast Lincoln campus. CHI says they hope to share resources with those in need, as masks will be required in many classrooms this fall and are also currently required in indoor, public places in Lincoln.

Lincoln Mayor Leirion Gaylor Baird will join CHI Health Nebraska Heart President Derek Vance and other CHI Health employees as they pass out up to 2,000 masks to community members.

Since June, CHI Health has hosted several free mask giveaways across Nebraska. This Saturday, CHI Health Nebraska Heart will once again be handing out free masks constructed with Halyard fabric, which is a material typically used to wrap surgical instrument trays in a medical setting. These masks can be washed and re-used. Please note, the masks are made for an adult face.

Anyone wishing to pick up free masks should drive through the main entrance loop at CHI Health Nebraska Heart, located at 7500 S 91st Street in Lincoln. Again, the mask giveaway will end at 11 a.m. or while supplies last.
