Medical grade masks recommended for public

ALPENA, Mich.–The Biden administration will soon equip the public with medical grade masks.

The center for disease control’s updated guide now recommends that Americans use surgical grade masks to protect against Covid–19.

400 million n95 masks will be available to Americans beginning next week.

Many of the masks will come from the government’s strategic national stockpile which currently has 750 million medical grade masks.

You can pick up the highly protective masks at pharmacies and community health centers.
