To protect our families, our community and ourselves in order to keep our beautiful and vibrant region healthy and our businesses open.
A Collaboration of
What We Do
Through a donation of masks and hand sanitizer from a collaborating partner, Economic Development and Financing Corporation (EDFC), businesses are able to receive much needed safety supplies from the chamber locations and distribution hubs throughout the county. There have already been over 40,000 masks and 100 cases of sanitizer distributed.
There is also a community-wide prize drawing for those who post selfies while wearing masks in front of county businesses and scenic landscapes. All photos should use the hashtag #MaskUpMendo and tag at least one friend.
All county businesses are invited to contact their local Chambers of Commerce for information and to obtain personal protective equipment (PPE).

"We are taking proactive steps to keep our friends and neighbors working and healthy so they can pay their rent or mortgage. It’s about keeping our local businesses open and thriving, which protects our quality of life and our municipal services that rely on tax revenue."

“The Mask Up Mendo awareness campaign focuses on education not enforcement. It will give businesses confidence and provide support for compliance with state and local mask ordinances. By collaborating with community partners, the Ukiah, Willits and Mendocino Coast Chambers of Commerce can offer businesses communication tools so that businesses are more prepared to encourage their customers to wear a mask.”

The spread of COVID-19 can be reduced when masks are used along with other preventive measures, including social distancing, frequent handwashing, and cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces.
