In an effort to keep City of Fort Worth employees safe while they are on the job, the city is conducting a collection drive for homemade protective masks starting on April 15.

The donated masks will be distributed to essential city workers in departments operating during the stay-at-home order to keep services running smoothly such as the animal shelter, Water Department, Transportation & Public Works and others. While the city has ordered additional manufactured protective masks, the demand for them is so great that some orders may not be fulfilled for months.
