Face masks will be given out to areas hit the hardest in the latest coronavirus spike in Kosciusko County.

Warsaw Mayor Joe Thallemer mentioned during Wednesday’s press conference at City Hall that the fire department will head to the mobile home parks in the area and will be distributing the masks. They will not be handed out door to door like the informational fliers a week ago, these will be all given to the office in each park for employees to hand out to residents.

Face masks are still available at Fire Stations 1 and 2 in Warsaw according to Fire Chief Michael Wilson. As of Wednesday morning, roughly 300 masks were available between the two stations.
