The Harford County Health Department in collaboration with the Maryland Department of Health will be providing free KN95 masks and IHealth at-home test kits to the public on Sunday, February 27, 2022 at the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) Vehicle Emissions Inspection Program (VEIP) Station at 1631 Robin Cir #3068 in Forest Hill.

The event is drive-thru starting at 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. or while supplies last. All individuals are asked
to remain in their car, wear their masks, and do their best to arrive on-time and not early. Directions for
use and instructions for reporting results are included in each testing kit. Each testing kit contains two
tests. One testing kit and four masks will be distributed to each individual that arrives in person. The tests
are intended for all people age 15 years or older and for children as young as two years old, when
samples are collected by an adult. Masks should be worn by individuals indoors age two years or older,
to slow the spread when around others outside your household.

“Correct and consistent mask use is an important and easy step that everyone can take to maximize
protection from the COVID variants and prevent possibly spreading it to others,” says Acting Health
Officer Marcy Austin. “We are very grateful to work with the Maryland Department of Transportation to
offer a drive-thru option to give out free KN95 masks and at-home test kits to the community.”
