LANSING, MI-- The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) is distributing 10 million free KN95 masks to Michiganders.

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer says this is to ensure the state can protect themselves from COVID-19 as the state continues to face the Omicron variant.

Free KN95 masks provided by MDHHS will be distributed by community organizations, including local MDHHS offices, health departments and Area Agency on Aging offices.

“We have the tools and we know what works as we face down the Omicron variant of COVID-19,” said Governor Gretchen Whitmer. “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.”

Residents who need masks can pick one up from partner sites across the state.
