COVID-19 Distribution Locations for Free KN95 Masks


woman wearing a KN95 maskTompkins County has purchased KN95 face masks in both adult and youth sizes to provide you with access to these high-quality products, free of charge. Due to their tight fit around the face, these masks provide better protection than cloth or surgical masks and are recommended to be worn when you are indoors around others, especially if you or others around you are not vaccinated against COVID-19 or at higher risk of severe illness.

Test Kits

Please Note: New York State no longer has test kits available for distribution, thus ending Whole Health's COVID-19 test kit distribution efforts as of April 4, 2024.

Since January 2022, WH has distributed over 275,000 test kits to our community, free of charge, to assist in reducing the spread of COVID-19. Our local partners have played a significant role in getting these kits out to the community, especially to those at high-risk of severe illness and/or without means of obtaining these items on their own. Whole Health thanks everyone involved for their effort and support. 

Additional information on self-testing is available here.
