Those masks are available on buses, at Votran’s Transfer Plaza, 207 Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune Blvd., Daytona Beach; and at Votran’s administrative office, 950 Big Tree Road, South Daytona.

The mask giveaway is part of the county’s “Step Up Volusia” program, a countywide initiative to reinforce the need for residents to practice hand-washing, physical distancing and the wearing of face coverings.

In addition, a growing number of Volusia County cities including including Daytona Beach, New Smyrna Beach, DeLand and Orange City have all all passed ordinances mandating mask use under specific conditions recently with varying penalties.

The face masks were provided by the State of Florida.

The City of Daytona Beach also is distributing free, re-usable cloth face masks from its four community centers. While supplies last, masks will be available from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday at the following locations:

‒ Dickerson Community Center, 308 S. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.;

‒ Midtown Community Center, 925 George W. Ingram Blvd.;

‒ Schnebly Recreation Center, 1101 N. Atlantic Ave.;

‒ Yvonne Scarlett-Golden Community Center, 1000 Vine St.

The 8,000 masks were provided by a personal donation from Zone 2 Commissioner Aaron Delgado and the Florida Department of Health in Volusia County.

In Daytona Beach, people are required to wear face coverings at any indoor locations where socially distancing is not possible.
