Late last week Mayor Gary Christenson announced that Malden is experiencing an uptick in confirmed COVID-19 cases which as of October 8th led to our city being designated a “red” community. The Mayor reminded residents to continue to take all precautionary measures such as limiting private gatherings, maintaining social distancing, wearing a mask, and being cautious while in parks and other public spaces.
In an effort to assist residents in doing their part to stop the spread of the virus and to help remove this high-risk designation, this week the Mayor distributed washable masks with the City logo in front of City Hall, 215 Pleasant Street. Hundreds of residents either drove up or walked up to the building to receive one. “We had a great turnout for our first distribution,” said Mayor Christenson. “We will be distributing them again next Thursday, October 22nd at City Hall from 3-5 PM.” #MaskUpMalden
