#MaskUpNoRo Initiative

(Last Updated on May 29, 2021 10:30am)

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommended that Americans wear cloth face coverings (masks) in public to help slow the spread of COVID-19. This recommendation is being made based on studies that show a significant proportion of people with COVID-19 lack symptoms and can transmit the virus to others in close proximity, through speaking, coughing, sneezing or other means. Also the Ohio Department of Health Director Dr. Amy Acton and Ohio Governor Mike DeWine also strongly recommend that Ohioans wear face coverings in public as well to prevent the further spread of COVID-19.

So in late March of 2020, Dan Langshaw while serving on City Council launched his #MaskUpNRWard3 & #MaskUpNoRo Initiative to get as many homemade cloth face masks to residents and businesses who urgently need in both Ward 3 and North Royalton Community to eliminate the spread of COVID-19!

Because of the help of many amazing volunteers “Mask Angels”, generous donations of supplies, and more. Over 5,000 FREE homemade cloth masks have already been given out so far to the elderly, those with high risk conditions to COVID-19, #NRWard3Buddy Program residents, nurses, front line health care workers, nursing homes, residential care facilities for those with developmental disabilities, essential businesses, essential workers, first responders families, schools, and more throughout both Ward 3 and the entire North Royalton community! Wearing a mask on top of other measures like social distancing and proper personal hygiene will help get us hopefully closer to a return back to normal sooner!

If you need a mask or like to make a donation of supplies email former North Royalton Ward 3 Councilman Dan Langshaw at danlangshawfornrward3@yahoo.com or call 440-785-4240.
