SOUTHERN COLORADO — The state of Colorado announced Tuesday a program to provide Colorado residents with free KN95 and surgical grade masks at public libraries and community sites around the state.

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment told News5 that since the announcement of the program, over 100 new sites have signed up for the program, and the Department will be expanding the list with more locations as they expand the program.
