OrthoCincy and others delivered over 2,000 masks to Covington Schools this week as part of Kentucky First Lady Britainy Beshear’s “Coverings for Kids” initiative to bring in mask donations for each school district state-wide.
Mrs. Beshear’s “Coverings for Kids” initiative is an effort to ensure all students and staff in Kentucky schools have access to facial coverings as schools begin to open. Covington's goal is to collect mask coverings for more than 3,000 students and 800 staff.
Specifications for making the masks can be found on the “Coverings for Kids” website at governor.ky.gov/CoveringsForKids. Masks should be different sizes to fit students in elementary through grade 12 and adult staff. Donated masks should be plain, with no messages on them.
Donations may be dropped off at the Covington Board of Education, 25 E 7th Street, Covington, Ky. For questions or concerns, please contact Mrs. Krumwiede, 859 392 3182, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
