Free Masks To All Who Use State COVID Mobile Testing

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott 

From the Office of the Texas Governor

AUSTIN, Texas -Governor Greg Abbott Thursday announced that the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM), in partnership with the Texas Military Department, will begin distributing 3-ply surgical masks. They will go to every Texan who undergoes COVID-19 testing at state-run mobile test collection sites. Starting Friday, each Texan who receives a COVID-19 test at a state-run mobile testing site gets four masks to keep. Texans can find a testing site near them by visiting TDEM’s COVID-19 Test Collection Site map.

“Wearing a mask or facial covering in public is an effective way for Texans to protect themselves and others from the transmission of COVID-19,” said Governor Abbott. “This program helps ensure that Texans have the resources they need to effectively mitigate the spread of this virus and keep them safe. I urge all Texans to do their part by taking necessary precautions that will reduce the spread of COVID-19 throughout our state.”
