Office of Emergency Management, Glen Cove distributes masks and sanitizer


With cases of Covid-19 rising, the importance of wearing masks and staying clean is becoming crucial and a partnership between the Nassau County Office of Emergency Management and the City of Glen Cove will help ensure Glen Cove residents do both.

Joe Trimarchi of the OEM was able to secure thousands of masks and bottles of hand sanitizer for the City of Glen Cove. Glen Cove City School District students and City Council members helped make packs of re-usable masks and the sanitizer, placing the packs in tote bags.

On Jan. 9, representatives from local organizations and churches stopped by the entrance of Glen Cove City Hall to pick up the tote bags. Among the churches and organizations that received Personal Protective Equipment that day were First Baptist Church of Glen Cove, the Glen Cove Senior Center and the Glen Cove Boys and Girls Club At Lincoln House.

There are still masks and hand sanitizer available for Glen Cove residents. Call
