Summit County residents can pick up free surgical masks

Editor’s note: This story has been updated to include additional pickup locations.

Summit County residents can get a free KN95 or surgical mask at both the North Branch Library in Silverthorne, the Breckenridge Recreation Center and South Branch Library in Breckenridge, and the Summit County Community and Senior Center in Frisco.

The nationwide program is funded through the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and the state is paying transportation and shipping costs so that Summit County residents can upgrade their masks, according to a news release from the county.

In the wake of the omicron variant, health officials are recommending that individuals upgrade their masks to better protect themselves.

The masks are available to residents free of charge, and there is a limit of five masks per person per month. They will be available as long as supplies last and can be picked up during normal operating hours.
