Crow Wing County Public Health has received 10,000 KN95 masks for the public. Starting Tuesday, February 1 masks will be available at the Crow Wing County Sheriff’s Office and local police departments across the county.

Public Health Supervisor Michelle Moritz, “Our local cases numbers are rising again and the Omicron variant is high transmissible, so it’s important to mask up. By working with local law enforcement agencies, we are able to make it convenient for residents to stop in for a mask no matter where you live. We also encourage you to pick some up and share with others to help keep our community safe.”

The masks are individually wrapped for easy distribution and are reusable. Residents can pick up free masks during business hours. Studies show that high quality masks like a KN95 better protect wearers from COVID-19 and help slow the spread of the virus
