    Maryland Department of Health to distribute free masks at regional health center in Clinton, MD for #MasksOnMaryland campaign

    Baltimore, MD The Maryland Department of Health (MDH) today announced it will distribute free masks at the D. Leonard Dyer Regional Health Center, located at 9314 Piscataway Road in Clinton, MD on Tuesday, August 25. The event, which begins at 10 a.m., will continue while supplies last.

    MDH, along with the Prince George’s County Health Department and Prince George's County NAACP, will distribute the masks as part of its #MasksOnMaryland campaign promoting the use of face coverings in public places to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

    “While we are enjoying the summer, we must remember to be safe and protect others by wearing a mask,” said MDH Secretary Robert R. Neall. “Continue to practice social distancing and avoid large gatherings to help drive down the state’s COVID-19 numbers.”  

    “We encourage everyone in our community to wear a mask, and we are looking forward to the opportunity to help make that happen through this event,” said Bob Ross, President of the Prince George’s County NAACP.

    Marylanders do not need to exhibit symptoms, suspect they’ve been exposed to COVID-19, or have a doctor’s order to get tested at the D. Leonard Dyer Regional Health Center.
