The only way to fight this pandemic is to fight together . The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services is distributing 3.5 million free masks as part of the state’s Mask Up, Mask Right campaign. According to WXYZ, the free KN95 masks will be distributed by community organizations, including local MDHHS offices, health departments and Area Agency on Aging offices.

In a press release, MDHHS Director Robert Gordon said, “We are urging Michiganders to Mask Up and Mask Right to protect themselves, their loved ones and their communities from COVID-19.” Gordon added, “Wearing the right kind of mask is important. Today’s distribution of effective masks will help more Michiganders limit the spread of COVID to save lives and get back to normal sooner.”
