To help the front lines of the Oregon Ag community, the state Department of Agriculture and Oregon State University Extension have announced a partnership to distribute face covers around the state. The KN95 masks are available to farmworkers, ranchers, farmers, fishers, food processors and other farm contractors to protect essential workers.
ODA and OSU have distribution locations established statewide to help meet individual needs. Those interested in picking up masks are asked to call for an appointment.
