Local home improvement store, Drakes Traders Limited has donated more than $20,000 worth of KN95 face masks to the Ministry of Health.
The sum contributed to a total of 4,500 masks being donated.
A media release from the Ministry of Health said the masks will aid the Public Health Division, “particularly the Environmental Health Unit who remains on the frontlines to inspect businesses and provide health screenings as British Virgin Islands nationals and permanent residents return back into the territory”.
Both Health Minister Carvin Malone and Chief Medical Officer Dr Irad Potter thanked Drake’s for being a good corporate citizen.
Government requires residents to wear masks in public spaces and inside businesses and other establishments as a safety measure during the COVID-19 pandemic.
