Free Mask Distribution in Houston
As we continue to monitor recommendations from the City of Houston, we want to encourage Midtown Houston visitors and residents to continue practicing social distancing and prioritizing your health and safety.
The CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies), especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.
The CDC also advises the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus. Face coverings can help people who may have the virus and asymptomatic from transmitting it to others. Cloth face coverings fashioned from household items or made at home from common materials at low cost can be used.
Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.
The cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical masks or N-95 respirators. Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance.
