BEACHWOOD, Ohio — The city of Beachwood has thousands of masks that it will hand out to residents in the coming days to help stop COVID-19 from spreading.

“We want our residents to stay healthy and wear face masks to promote the continued health of our city,” said Beachwood Mayor Martin S. Horwitz. “These masks can be washed and worn multiple times, so they are also healthier for our environment.”

The city has 10,000 masks that it plans to give out.

Residents who are interested in receiving a free mask can obtain one by visiting Beachwood City Hall, 25325 Fairmount Blvd., on June 7 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., June 8 from 2 to 6 p.m. and on June 9 from 2 to 6 p.m.

Masks will be distributed in the parking lot of city hall in a "contactless manner."

According to the mayor’s office, each person who is interested in obtaining a mask will need to show their ID to verify they are a Beachwood resident. If you are a new resident, you can show a utility bill that is dated from the last 45 days.

“If you’re outside in Beachwood, running errands, or visiting someone who isn’t part of your quarantine household, please wear a mask,” Horwitz said.
