Since early August 2020, the City of Springfield and the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce have been collaborating to provide free face masks for the Springfield small businesses community. To date more than 7,000 masks have been distributed to over 90 Springfield small businesses.
Any small business (50 employees or less) currently operating in Springfield is eligible for a pick-up or delivery. Businesses are now allowed to make a request for replenishment one time per month.
These masks have been provided by Business Oregon and are meant for either business employees or patrons, at the discretion of the business, and are not medical grade.
Wearing masks is a critical tool in curbing the transmission of COVID19. By wearing masks, individuals are communicating care for the health of those around them. City and Chamber staff hope that this supply of extra resources might assist our small business communities’ ability to offer a mask to patrons or employees when needed.
When arranging pick-up or delivery, businesses will be asked to provide a business name, their business’s physical address, and minimal contact information for verification of being located in Springfield.
