The County of Maui is donating 7,000 face masks and 3,000 nitrile gloves to the Hawaii Department of Education for public schools in Maui County, Mayor Michael Victorino announced Friday.
“As parents and teachers prepare for the start of classes, we wanted to provide some support to our local schools,” Mayor Victorino said. “Face masks are an important way to reduce the transmission of the coronavirus. These donated face masks are intended as a back-up in case students or teachers forget their masks at home or need to replace them while at school.”
“We will continue working with the DOE on how we can further assist our teachers and provide a safe learning environment for our keiki,” Mayor Victorino said.
