Finally we are able to see a little blue sky and clouds after the smoke from all these wildfires, but call me skeptical. I'm convinced the smoke will be coming back, and the mask I had last week is a bit tattered. Where can I get a mask, preferably for free?

Well, Sue, we at Since You Asked Central are Debbie Downers ourselves when it comes to predicting when the smoke from these fires is going away. But, thanks to AllCare Health, more free masks are on their way.
AllCare Vice President Joshua Balloch says his company has received another shipment of 12,000 masks that will be given away Sunday and Monday at AllCare facilities in Medford and Grants Pass.
The company had 12,000 masks this past week that AllCare employees gave out in about four hours, Balloch says.
"They were absolutely flying out of here," Balloch says.
The masks will be given out from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday and on Monday from 9 a.m. to noon or when they run out, Balloch says.
AllCare in Medford is at 3629 Aviation Way. AllCare in Grants Pass is at 1701 NW Seventh St.
