Masks Available at Fast food restaurants

The Alberta government will be handing out non medical masks through Tim Horton's, A&W and MacDonalds starting early this month.

Each Albertan is allowed one package of four masks, while supplies last. The masks also come with instructions on how to wear and dispose of them. 

No purchase is necessary. It will be based on an honor system that each Albertan will only request masks once.

The province will also look at other ways to distribute the masks, like at high-risk transmission areas such as transit and places of worship, for people who can't access one of the drive-thru locations.

The province is also working with municipalities, First Nations communities, Métis settlements and local agencies to distribute masks.
