Why do Contra Costa City and Business Leaders Not Mention that Donated N-95 Masks should be in “Unopened Containers/Boxes”

Despite Contra Costa Health Services, the largest the county government department, noting on their advisories and donations page that any N-95 mask donations must be in unopened containers/boxes”, it seems like every other day I’m getting email requests from school superintendents, police chiefs, business leaders and other government officials imploring me to, “donate any masks or gloves”.

Why are county government and business leaders encouraging people to donate any masks without checking guidance from our county government? Is the official county health department responsible for managing the coronavirus crisis being too conservative in the face of an emergency, or are local government officials being irresponsible for forwarding requests without checking county donation guidelines?
