There are still masks available at all three Milwaukee Health Department sites while supplies last.
The city received a shipment of 500,000 N95 masks from the state earlier this month, but ran out after just a few days.
A second shipment of 500,000 masks was received earlier this week, and the city began handing them out for free on Thursday.
Most library locations were only open for one or two hours before they ran out of masks.
Milwaukee Public Schools has also received a shipment of 100,000 masks. Students and teachers are scheduled to return to in-person learning on January 18th.
Thank you @GovEvers for the 100,000 N95 masks. The N95 masks will help protect our students and staff when we return to school on Tuesday, January 18th. #ThankYou #CrushCovid pic.twitter.com/gzZjSlxfnp— Dr. Keith P. Posley (@DrPosleyMPS) January 12, 2022
