ROELAND PARK, Kan. — The city of Roeland Park is offering residents a chance to receive free KN-95 masks. 

Anyone interested in receiving masks must fill out an online form and submit it to the city. The city has secured 3,000 masks to distribute on a first come, first serve basis.

Once a request has been filed, city staff will contact residents directly to schedule a time to pick up the masks at city hall. Residents will be required to show proof of address when picking up their masks. City staff will distribute up to five adult-sized masks per household.
