Ways to get a FREE Face Mask
In addition to FREE COVID-19 Tests, the federal government is distributing 400 million FREE N95 face masks for adults. The masks are available now at most pharmacies & community health centers and should be at all locations by early February (limit 3 per adult).
The CDC says that these well-fitting N95 masks offer “the highest level of protection” against COVID-19, providing much better coverage than standard surgical masks.
