Ice Cube Donates Thousands Of Masks To Bacone College To Limit The Spread Of Coronavirus

With COVID-19 cases spreading across the United States due to the Delta Variant, the CDC is still requiring a need for masks and other PPE to limit the spread of coronavirus.

Ice Cube stepped up to the plate and partnered with Derrick Armstrong to donate over 2,000 masks to Bacone College in Oklahoma for the fall semester.

“We are so grateful today,” the college tweeted. “Bacone received a donation of 2000 face masks for students from legendary rapper and actor @icecube and Derrick Armstrong of 115 Management. #maskupstaysafe #warriors #baconecollege.”

Masks will be required throughout the campus, but with this donation free masks will be available for students and faculty.

“We are incredibly grateful to Ice Cube and Mr. Armstrong. This is a generous gift that comes at a time when this virus is experiencing a resurgence in our area,” college president Dr. Ferlin Clark shared.

“We are dedicated to keeping our students safe and healthy, and this will have a lasting impact on our efforts.”

Oklahoma reported over 2,500 cases on August 25, which is about the same it was back in November for positive tests in the state. Also 136 deaths were reported according to Hiphopdx.

Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla spoke with Fox News stating, “every time that the variant appears in the world, our scientists are getting their hands around it, they are researching to see if this variant can escape the protection of our vaccine. We haven’t identified any yet but we believe that it is likely that one day, one of them will emerge.”

With the help that Ice Cube put it hopefully this fall semester will be much better for Bacone College.
