The Gulf Coast Patient Wellness Education is sponsoring a free mask giveaway in Ocean Springs in partnership with MSDH.
The event is drive-thru only and will be at the Digestive Health Center off Bienville Road from 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Director of Special Projects Terra Dickey tells News 25 that the giveaway is intended to give more masks to local residents as the holidays approach, to give Mississippians an added layer of protection against COVID-19.
If you participate in the free mask giveaway you will receive four cloth masks. As children will be out for the holidays, kids’ masks will be handed out as well.
Dickey says that other community partners will be available as well like Magnolia Health to provide more information on deadlines to health insurance enrollment programs and coverage.
