  • #MaskUpMemphis Social Media Challenge — Leaders are asking Memphians to upload selfies to social media showing off their masks including the hashtag #MaskUpMemphis. The goal is to show that it is commonplace to wear masks right now to improve public health.
  • Mask Giveaways—Mask Up and Live Memphis will provide masks to residents that may not be able to afford one but want to do their part to be safe. Free mask pick-up and donation drop-off locations include: Memphis public libraries; MATA bus terminals; Southbrook Town Center; Pressure World; Lisa Akbari, The Hair Doctor; and Teaching Youth Entrepreneurship.
  • — The campaign is also launching an informational website to highlight the importance of mask-wearing, how to wear a mask, and where to obtain a mask for free. The site will also provide information on where to get tested and other safety tips.
