Calif. Provides Masks for Agricultural Employees

Cal-OES State Operations Center made a number of surgical masks and cloth masks available for farmworkers and other agricultural employees, with the cloth masks intended specifically for migrant housing facilities. These have shipped to County Ag Commissioners’ (CAC) offices and will be made available according to local needs. This is a one-time emergency shipment to fill the gap while the supply chain catches up with high-volume demand. 

To procure masks for your operations, please contact your local CAC office. Click here for a listing of county offices. 

There continues to be a significant shortage of N95 masks for health care workers, first responders, and the various agricultural and industrial activities that require N95 masks.
