Free PPE offered to Orange County residents at COVID-19 testing sites

Orange County is handing out free personal protective equipment (PPE) on Tuesday to those who get tested for the coronavirus at Riverside Elementary School. 

The school is located at 3125 Pembrook Drive in Orlando.  Residents who get tested will receive a free box of face masks and hand sanitizer. 

The demand for PPE has been huge as store shelves have been wiped clean since the coronavirus pandemic began. As Florida reopens, more and more stores are requiring customers to wear face masks.
