Although all New Yorkers are required to wear a mask or face covering when out in public and in situations where a 6-foot distance from others cannot be maintained, masks can be hard to come by and sometimes expensive as well. So the city decided to do something about it.
Over 100,000 face coverings will be distributing in parks across NYC free of charge until Tuesday, May 12th. Below you will find the Staten Island distribution locations and times.
