Benidorm City Council begins today the gradual distribution of masks to school-age children registered in the city. The first to receive their masks will be the youngest students, those born in 2015 and 2016; while on Friday it will be the turn of those born between 2011 and 2014, as reported today by the Mayor, Toni Pérez. The delivery of masks, which will reach the school population born in 2003, will be completed next week.

The Mayor has indicated that "in total, the City Council is going to deliver 9,000 masks to registered students in Benidorm born between 2003 and 2016, within a municipal initiative with which we intend that our minors enjoy their outings with the maximum guarantees of safety " Toni Pérez said  "that since last week these masks have been available to nearly a thousand schoolchildren who use the municipal program 'Menjadors a casa'.

Regarding the delivery of the masks, it has been arranged that families can obtain them at the collection points that have been used for the 'Menjadors a casa' program: the Casa del Fester, el José Llorca Linares social center, Les Caletes Municipal Children's School and CEIP El Murtal, Ausiàs March and Els Tolls ”. Each educational center in Benidorm is assigned one of these collection points, which will be operational in the morning and afternoon from 10.00am to 1.00pm and from 5.00pm to 7.00pm.

The mayor has clarified that "minors from Lope de Vega, Costablanca and Waldorf schools, as well as students registered in Benidorm but schooled in another municipality may obtain their mask at the collection point closest to their home."

These collection points will be attended by municipal staff and volunteers from the Collective Aid Network (#RAC). In the coming days, the date of collection of the masks for the rest of the school population will be annouced.
