WESTPORT — The town’s emergency response management team will be providing surgical masks to residents on Tuesday.

With the help of the Grace Farms Foundation in New Canaan, the town was able to purchase surgical masks for the public, a news release said. Masks will be given out to residents at Bedford Middle School from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. or as long as supplies last. Distribution is by drive-through only.

Residents will be required to show proof of residency — a driver’s license, vehicle registration or utility bill. The driver will be asked how many people live in the Westport residence, the news release said, and masks will be dropped into the car to reduce personal contact.

Masks will also be distributed to those receiving groceries or frozen meals through the Westport Center for Senior Activities. Seniors or members of other vulnerable populations without access to transportation to the distribution site can contact the town’s Department of Human Services at humansrv@westportct.gov or 203-341-1050.
