Cloth Masks
Stop by the local Health Department (1503 South Main Street) from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM to pick up your free mask!  One mask per individual in a household is allowed.  This is while supplies last, but more shipments will be coming in regularly.

Health Department Testing
The local Health Department (1503 South Main Street) is conducting drive through testing, free of charge, Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM.  No doctor’s order is required, and no appointment is necessary.  Anyone can be tested regardless of symptoms.  Results are generally available in about two days.

Thank you for being part of the solution and thank you for the opportunity to serve as your County Mayor.  If you are interested in hearing my thoughts and views on news, events, and activities in Cumberland County, please subscribe to my newsletter, and follow me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
