Free KN95 masks available in more locations around town

February 24, 2022 – FYI, News

Free KN95 masks are now more widely available in Juneau. The Alaska Department of Health and Social Services sent more masks to Juneau, and they’re being distributed by the Juneau Public Health Center and the City and Borough of Juneau. Pick up a free box of KN95 masks at the following locations while supplies last:

  • City Hall Cash Office
  • All Juneau Public Libraries (Downtown, Mendenhall Valley, and Douglas)
  • Juneau Public Health Center, 3412 Glacier Highway (across the street from Twin Lakes parking lot)
  • Juneau Police Department, 6255 Alaway Avenue

The current overall COVID-19 community risk level is Level 2 Moderate. At this level, individuals who are not fully vaccinated must wear a mask or face covering in indoor public areas and crowded outdoor events; and fully vaccinated individuals are highly recommended to wear a mask in indoor public areas. Masking remains required in CBJ facilities regardless of vaccination status, and businesses and organizations may choose to also require masking in their facilities.

CBJ is still distributing free rapid antigen COVID-19 self-tests at the above-specified locations. The tests can be self-administered at home or anywhere, are easy to use, and return results in 10-15 minutes. CBJ is currently distributing the CareStart COVID-19 Antigen Home Test, which expires on June 30, 2022, despite what the printed sticker indicates.

Please do not go into any CBJ facility if you’re feeling sick, or if you’ve been identified as a close contact and should be quarantining. If you’re feeling sick, schedule an appointment at CBJ’s drive-thru testing facility online or call 907-586-6000.
