Officials continue to urge people to wear face coverings while out in public; and when Tulsa begins to reopen on Friday, the Salvation Arm will be prepared.

The Salvation Arm received thousands of masks Thursday that will be given out to people at the Center of Hope shelter and the temporary emergency shelter at the old Juvenile Justice Center.

The Meek's Group donated 3,000 masks to the Salvation Army.

So far, employees at the printing business said they've donated around 10,000 masks to other non-profits and businesses across northeastern Oklahoma, including medical offices and retirement homes.

The company said they are fortunate they have been able to stay open during the coronavirus pandemic. Craig Powell said they're glad they can help folks stay protected.

The Meek's Group said they are open to creating more masks.
