With face coverings now mandated by the state for all public places, the city of Bellevue is working with the Bellevue Chamber to provide 40,000 free masks to residents with new dates and times available for pickup this week.

The masks are part of 25 million face coverings King County purchased to encourage the availability and use of personal protective equipment.

“Our partnership with the Chamber to get masks into the hands of our residents and businesses at no cost is a key component in our fight against COVID-19,” Mayor Lynne Robinson stated in a press release. “Wearing face coverings can reduce virus transmission, but people can’t be expected to have them readily at hand. This helps close that gap. I hope many people take advantage of this opportunity to stand strong as a community and stay safe.”

The chamber has enlisted member organizations to help facilitate distribution throughout the city. Staff and volunteers for the city will also help. Volunteers and Chamber staff have prepared kits containing two cloth face coverings each. Bellevue residents can pick them up at the following times and locations:

New times and locations for this week (week of July 6):

  • Bellevue Chamber, Monday-Friday, noon-4 p.m. 330 112th Ave NE, Ste 100
  • Salvation Army, Wednesday-Friday, noon-4 p.m. 911 164th Ave NE
