This week the Eden Health District began the free distribution of 100,000 KN 95 masks. Over 60,000 masks have already been provided to Eden Area first responders, health care providers, nonprofit organizations and essential workers, with the remaining masks to be delivered within the next week.

“Obtaining FDA-certified face masks has been a daunting challenge for many of the outstanding local agencies and nonprofit organizations that treat COVID-19 patients and those most vulnerable to becoming infected with the coronavirus,” stated Eden Health District CEO Mark Friedman.
