In an effort to provide safe, personal protective equipment for everyone in the community during the COVID-19 pandemic, local residents and organizations have partnered with the #InThisTogetherOhio initiative to distribute face masks to Seneca County residents at no cost. Masks come in adult sizes and are free to individuals (one per person). Supplies are limited. This is in addition to the great work that has been done through the Facebook group, “Helping Hands in Seneca County“. We are all working together to protect our community. Thank you to everyone for your efforts!
