Del. Sam Rasoul passes out masks to Roanoke residents
ROANOKE, Va. – Some local elderly residents can now better protect themselves from the coronavirus thanks to a Virginia lawmaker. Sam Rasoul, who’s district includes Roanoke, handed out masks at Melrose Towers in Roanoke on Monday afternoon. He also handed out information about the coronavirus, instructions for making masks out of T-shirts and distributed fresh fruit for residents. So anytime we’ve got a building like this, people congregating together, we’ve got to do everything we can to protect vulnerable populations.
