KN95 masks and at-home test kits tomorrow, says Council Member Julie Menin

According to Menin’s office, in addition to top-level face masks provided by NYC Health & Hospitals, they’ve also obtained at-home test kits courtesy of Mark Levine, the Manhattan Borough President. Each kit contains two rapid tests.

Both the food pantry and the face mask/rapid test giveaway take place in the lobby at 546 Main Street, home of the CBN/RI Senior Center. With the virus spreading rapidly, face masks and social distancing are required.
