Baltimore County Hits Goal Of Distributing 100,000 COVID-19 Safety Kits

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

The Baltimore County Department of Health hit its goal of distributing 100,000 COVID-19 safety kits to residents. The kits include masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, soap and educational information about the coronavirus. 


The department has been distributing kits since May to communities disproportionately affected by the pandemic. It originally expected to meet its goal in December.


Baltimore County Health Officer Dr. Gregory Branch says there are enough supplies to continue this effort. The kits are available across the county at locations like apartment complexes, food distribution sites and COVID-19 testing clinics.
