A City of Helsinki campaign to supply the city’s needy with free face masks has gotten off to a good start, with no crowding recorded at distribution points and enough masks to go around at each location. Some 17,000 packages of masks have been handed out to date, including about 4,600 in connection with food aid deliveries, 4,000 in association with social service and health care customer visits, and another 8,500 or so distributed from other locations.
