Take Cover Initiative

The Illinois Heart and Lung Foundation (IHLF) is launching Take Cover with the support and participation of partners from the McLean County Health Department, the McLean County Health Department Medical Reserve Corp, Advocate BroMenn Medical Center, the Town of Normal Police and Fire Departments, the City of Bloomington Police and Fire Departments, and Starcrest Cleaners.

Community members are being asked to support the Take Cover initiative by donating hand-sewn or commercially manufactured face coverings in a range of sizes or by contributing to the Take Cover fund at the IHLF for the purchase of face-coverings in bulk quantities. Mounting a focused effort to offer free masks to all individuals and families within the community helps reduce community spread of the virus and better protects the health and safety of residents at the highest risk of poor outcomes should they contract COVID-19.

Additional details about the Take Cover initiative can be found in the attached news release. The program kicks off this Friday, May, 22nd and runs through Monday, June 22nd. If you have any questions, I can be reached at or by cell phone 309-310-9321. I am currently doing much of my work from home rather than in the office.
