Where to Get a FREE Mask This Week in Chicago

As you know, as of May 1, Illinois residents are required to wear a face covering when in public where staying 6-feet apart from other people is not possible, according to Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s office.   For the city of Chicago, Mayor Lori Lightfoot said any policy needs to be reasonable for people across the city, so she plans to work to make sure residents have materials to comply.   All over town, various aldermen have announced free mask giveaways and delivery services available to residents continuing through the month.
