 The Hermantown Chamber listed this in their press release:

  • The event will be held rain or shine
  • Drive through Distribution, while supplies last.
  • Masks are in boxes of 50, attendees can select one or two boxes.
  • These are for businesses - for their employees and for customers so businesses don't have to turn away a paying customer.
  • Individuals who do not have a mask should be able to get them at a business they patronize.
  • The supply is not intended to get businesses through the COVID crisis, this is a small allotment to help as the statewide mask mandate is introduced. Businesses will need to work with their vendors to procure future supplies.
  • They will be free, and because they were paid with tax-payer dollars, these masks are to be distributed to your employees/customers for free.
  • You do not need to be a member of a chamber of commerce to receive masks, but the Hermantown Area Chamber of Commerce always welcomes new members.
