Free masks distributed in La Crosse

Distribution held at Myrick Park

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – Free masks were given out to those who need them in our community.

The city of La Crosse held the giveaway earlier today in Myrick Park.

City staff say they are just trying to help keep community members safe.

“We’re trying to meet a need here for community members who don’t have them readily accessible and also trying to cut down on waste,” said Leah Burns with the City of La Crosse Park and Recreation.

The washable and reusable masks meet CDC recommendations.
