[ARCHIVED] City To Provide Face Masks to Low Income Residents

Low Income Chart_6_26_20

In follow up to the Governor’s Order 20-03 that mandates the use of face coverings in any indoor or outdoor public setting in the state, the city has obtained cloth face masks that are available to low income Mountlake Terrace residents at a drive through/walk up event on Monday, June 29 from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m.  The event will take place on 57th Avenue W, just north of 232nd Street SW and west of the former Rogers Market parking lot located at 23120 56th Avenue West. 

These washable, cloth masks were provided by the state to the Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management (DEM) and are available to those who meet the low income standard. Low income individuals are defined as someone at or below the 200% federal poverty level. Please see chart for income ranges.

To verify Mountlake Terrace residency, please bring proof of address such as a piece of mail or photo identification. You will be asked to attest that you meet the income qualifications. The city is also reaching out to Edmonds School District to see if additional giveaways can be done at the District’s Grab and Go Meal program sites.

The Governor’s order is effective as of Friday, June 26 and applies to anyone who is inside of or in line to enter any indoor public space, seeking health care services, waiting for or riding public transportation, outdoors and unable to keep six feet away from others not in their household.  There are exceptions for children under the age of five and people with a medical condition, mental health condition or disability that prevents them from wearing a face covering. In no case should children under two years of age wear a face covering due to the risk of suffocation.  The Department of Health has issued guidance for cloth face coverings. A cloth face covering is anything from a scarf or bandana to a sewn mask with ties or straps that go around your head or behind your ears.

For more information, visit the Department of Health’s website at  The city has ordered additional face masks to distribute to the remainder of the community once they are received. The cost of these face masks will be submitted for reimbursement from federal CARES Act funding.
