Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Distribution

Austin Public Health is hosting a series of free PPE distribution events. These events are in areas with high COVID-19 positivity rates based on testing data. 

  • These events will provide hand sanitizer, masks, and educational materials.
  • Some events also offer COVID-19 vaccine and, in collaboration with Central Texas Food Bank, a box of non-perishable food, as well as other bonus items. Please see the individual listings detailed information.

COVID-19 is easily spread from person to person. Please review the Risk-Based Guidelines for recommendations on when you should wear a mask. If you are not vaccinated, please remain vigilant, wear a mask, and take all precautions to help our community avoid another surge in cases.
