Face masks for persons of limited means

The municipality of Sipoo provides residents of limited means with face masks free of charge. The masks are for single use only. The masks are meant for residents who need face masks, but are unable to acquire them themselves on the grounds of their poor financial status. Residents with adequate means are to buy and pay for their face masks themselves. You are not asked to present any proof of your financial status when you come to collect the masks, self-attestation is enough.
