Need a mask? Burlington’s got them for free. Donations sought

The City of Burlington is offering free packs of disposable masks from City Hall and as of Tuesday, Aug. 4, 2020, individual re-useable masks will be available from City Hall and Burlington Public Library’s (BPL) Tansley Woods, New Appleby, Aldershot and Central branches.

Burlington residents who need a mask can come to City Hall or a library branch listed above during operating hours to pick up a mask for themselves or their family.

A staff member located at the entrance doors can direct inquiring residents to take a mask home for use. We recommend that residents follow Public Health Guidelines and wash their re-useable cloth masks before and after use.
