The mask distribution is part of Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s plan to ensure Michigan citizens can protect themselves from COVID-19 as the state continues to battle the Omicron variant. 10 million free masks were distributed to local MDHHS offices, health departments, and Area Agency on Aging offices.
In a press release by the Governor’s office, Whitmer said the highly-effective KN95 masks will keep Michigan communities safe.
“We have the tools and we know what works as we face down the Omicron variant of COVID-19,” Whitmer stated in her press release. “By distributing 10 million highly-effective KN95 masks, we can keep families and communities safe. I encourage Michiganders to pick up a free KN95 mask at their local MDHHS office, public health department, or community organization. Together, we can keep ourselves and our loved ones safe.”
Well-fitting disposable surgical masks and KN95s offer the most protection from COVID-19. These masks are available for pick up now at any CACS Service Center.
