GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. (WGHP) — Guilford County is hosting mask distribution events.
The masks will be distributed on a first-come-first-serve basis.
There will be a second event on Monday at the Greensboro Coliseum beginning at 2 p.m. until the masks are distributed.
The GCDPH says this distribution program comes following the recent guidance from the CDC stating: Well-fitting disposable surgical masks NIOSH-approved respirators (including N95s) offer the highest level of protection against the COVID-19 virus. A respirator mask has better filtration, and if worn properly the whole time it is in use, can provide a higher level of protection than a cloth or procedural mask.
The High Point giveaway on Friday ran out very quickly.
