Starting early in June, non-medical masks will be available from three drive thru restaurants in Cochrane. No purchase is necessary to go to the pickup window and receive a pack of four masks at A&W, Tim Hortons and McDonald's while supplies last.
The Alberta Government is making 20 million masks available.
Mask use is not mandatory; they are an option for situations where maintaining a physical distance of two metres is not possible.
Alternative arrangements are being made for communities that don’t have easy access to a drive-thru location.
