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

Earlier, we reported that, in an arrangement with the RIDA Free Food Pantry, City Council Member Julie Menin would hand out KN95 face masks from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. Now, there’s more., tomorrow.

The Roosevelt Island Daily News

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.
