Free masks available at County and State testing sites, as well as the Sports and Learning Complex vaccination clinic and select County libraries and community centers.

LARGO, MD – Free CDC-approved adult-sized KN95 masks are available for Prince George’s County residents at multiple locations, while supplies last. The State-supplied masks are available at County COVID-19 testing sites and vaccination clinics during regular operating hours, as well as at select Prince George’s County Memorial Library System (PGCMLS) branches and Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) community centers during our weekly rapid test kit distributions. 

Each County resident present at a mask distribution site will receive two masks. Residents must provide proof of residency; examples include but are not limited to, a driver’s license, utility bill, or lease agreement. The masks are free regardless of insurance or immigration status.

“We strongly encourage residents to wear higher-filtration masks like KN95s over their noses and mouths to give themselves and those around them the best mask protection from COVID-19,” said Prince George’s County Deputy Chief Administrative Officer for Health, Human Services, and Education Dr. George L. Askew. “Cases in the County are declining, but transmission remains high. Omicron continues to be the dominant variant and it is highly contagious. Correct and consistent masking remains critical to slowing the spread and keeping each other healthy.”

Free KN95 masks are also available, while supplies last, at three Maryland Department of Health COVID-19 testing sites in the County. In addition, Prince George’s County Public Schools continue to hand out free KN95 masks each week to students and staff.
