Camden Mayor Alfred Mae Drakeford wears one of the thousands of protective fabric masks delivered to the Midlands as part of an effort she is co-chairing with Cayce Mayor Elise Partin called Mayors for Masks. The program is nationwide, and Darkeford and Partin are heading up the local effort with assistance from Bella+Canvas, which is donating more than 1 million non-medical grade masks or cloth face covers to mayors around the country.

In an effort to help local leaders contain the spread of COVID-19 novel coronavirus and safeguard citizens against infection, the United States Conference of Mayors (USCM) is coordinating the nationwide Mayors for Masks initiative with mayors across the U.S., and has already delivered thousands of protective face masks to Midlands area municipalities.
