46,000 masks donated to National City students
NATIONAL CITY, Calif .– Each student in National City will receive five face masks as part of an effort to help stop the spread of the coronavirus, especially the delta variant.
National City announced the initiative this week, saying it comes after the CDC’s mask guidelines updated calling on everyone to wear masks in indoor public places, regardless of vaccination status.
“Five masks for every National City student will help provide additional tools in the fight against COVID-19 as we fight this 4th wave and the contagious variant of the Delta,” National City Mayor Alejandra Sotelo-Solis said.
The masks are offered through a partnership with Last Mile San Diego, Sweetwater School District, National School District and the City of National City.
Sotelo-Solis also reminds parents that children 12 years and older can be vaccinated, an extra layer of protection against the virus. The city has partnered with the Samahan Health Clinic, Filipino nurses, and the Magestics Lions Club, among others, to help increase immunization levels, especially among those 12 and older.
“Our district is thrilled to partner again with National City to support our students and our community by donating face masks to schools in National City. This is a great example of how our cities and schools can work together to support our communities, ”said SUHSD Superintendent Dr. Moises Aguirre.
