CNN: Free N-95 Masks are rolling in
In addition to the free COVID tests available to order across the United States, free N-95 masks are now available. The initiative is part of President Biden’s plan to distribute 400 million free N95 masks from the Strategic National Stockpile through pharmacies and community health centers. Amongst the participating pharmacies are Hy-Vee, Meijer, CVS, Walgreens, and Kroger. The program is scheduled to be fully operational by early February. The majority of the free masks are currently being transported to their destinations, along with pamphlets and signage from the US Department of Health and Human Services, which paid for them. Furthermore, up to three masks are available to everyone in the United States. More details on the article by Jacqueline Howard can be viewed here.
