GRANTS PASS, Ore. – On Monday,  a regional healthcare provider will be handing out free masks to help protect residents from wildfire smoke.

AllCare Health said, “These special N95 protective masks are for limited protection against smoke and ultra-fine particles. It’s recommended that anyone with a respiratory disease wear a mask and stay indoors to protect themselves from the smoke in the air.”
