FREE FACE MASKS AVAILABLE ONCE AGAIN AT SHELBY COUNTY PUBLIC HEALTH CLINICS

 

SHELBY COUNTY, TN – Beginning June 11, 2020, the Shelby County Health Department will once again dispense fabric face masks to the public at 814 Jefferson and its other public health facilities located around Shelby County.

The masks, provided in partnership with Tennessee Governor Bill Lee’s Unified Command Group, have been declared safe for human use by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Tennessee Department of Health.

The masks are treated with a chemical called Silvadur 930, an antimicrobial that inhibits the growth of odor-causing bacteria.  Many fabrics are treated with Silvadur 930, including sheets, pillow cases, athletic wear and underwear.

According to the EPA, once Silvadur 930 is incorporated into the fabric, it is extremely unlikely it would be inhaled; therefore, the EPA considers inhalation exposure to be negligible and not a health concern.

The masks may be picked up, while supplies last, at all Shelby County Health Department locations listed below during the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., with the exception of the Collierville clinic, which is open Tuesday and Thursday only. No appointment is needed to pick up a mask.
