Indianapolis has kicked off a new program to provide free masks to anyone in Marion County.

The initiative is aimed at people who are unable to buy or get access to masks as well as older adults and people with health concerns.

Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett says wearing a mask is a critical part of slowing the spread.

"When you see someone wearing a mask, they aren’t wearing it for themselves," says Hogsett. "They are wearing it for you."

The masks will be adult size and fit most people. Delivery of masks should be expected within 30 days of requests. The city will also work with community partners to provide pickup locations for distribution.

Requests can be made at Indy.gov/masks.
