PASCO COUNTY, Fla. — Anyone who is still in need of a face mask to abide by Pasco County's mandatory order is in luck as the county will be handing them out for free at several locations.

"Pasco County is seeing a sharp increase in the number of COVID-19 cases, including an increase in our younger population," the county wrote online. "In an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19 Pasco County Administrator Dan Biles has issued an executive order requiring everyone in Pasco County to use face coverings while indoors at a public business or county government facility, effective immediately."
