SOUTHAVEN, Miss — The DeSoto County supervisors, along with other city officials, are stepping up to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the community.
Workers set up a free mask drive-thru event Saturday in the parking lot of DeSoto Central High School.
The giveaway comes after health officials reported DeSoto County as the leading county of COVID-19 cases in the state of Mississippi.
Masks were only available to Mississippi residents.
Organizers say this is the third mask giveaway in partnership with the Mississippi Community Mask program.
