Escambia County is launching a public health campaign, "Mask Up, Escambia!" focused on informing residents and visitors that masks are recommended by the CDC. In addition, the county will distribute face masks for the public while supplies last at community centers, libraries and at Pensacola Beach beginning today, Thursday, July 2, during normal business hours.
The primary message of the campaign focuses on wearing your mask to protect others, as recommended by the CDC. While the campaign applies to all ages, the primary target audience age is 25 to 34, which is the range that now has the highest number of cases in the state.
