The Texas Rangers are partnering with Arlington to give out 250,000 face coverings to employees of the city's businesses and restaurants.
The team made the announcement Monday saying phase one of the city's Roadmap to Ropen and Recover would provide the protective masks, donated by Tarrant County, for free on a first-come, first-serve basis to business owners on Wednesday.
Business owners will be required to show a food establishment permit number to receive the masks. The masks will not be given out to the general public.
The masks were donated by the county to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to protect the most vulnerable members of the community.
The giveaway is done in partnership between the Texas Rangers, the city of Arlington, the Greater Arlington Chamber of Commerce, the Arlington Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Downtown Arlington Management Corporation.
