What started Thursday, will continue into Saturday, December 5 (while supplies last). 355,000 face coverings will be available at four Parks & Recreation locations-

  • Himes Ave. Complex – 4501 S. Himes Ave
  • MacFarlane Park – 1700 N. MacDill Ave.
  • Al Barnes Park – 2902 N. 32nd St.
  • New Tampa Community Center – 17302 Commerce Park Blvd.

Residents can pick up 2 face coverings per person; no ID is required.

“The continued use of face coverings is critical to flattening the curve of COVID-19 in our community. It’s important that we remain vigilant in our safety precautions and practice those simple healthy habits to protect not only just ourselves, but all our loved ones and community members around us,” said Mayor Jane Castor.

This is the second opportunity for City of Tampa residents to receive free face coverings. City of Tampa staff distributed over 400,000 face coverings to the community in June 2020.
