Other distributions will continue over the next month at various locations. The kits include surgical masks, wipes, hand soap, hand sanitizer and instructions on how to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.
Today's distribution will be at the fairgrounds, 4310 TX-36, Rosenberg, TX 77471 and will last until 2 p.m. or earlier if supplies run out. One kit per vehicle and no registration is needed.
