The federal government's free N95 mask rollout program began this week - and a shipment is expected to arrive in Hudson Valley pharmacies and health care centers very soon.
The masks will be available at community health centers and any pharmacies participating in the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program. This includes pharmacies and retailers like Walmart, CVS and Costco.
The program is expected to be fully running by the beginning of February.
Customers are reported to be allowed three free masks per person.
