As a way to help our communities remain safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, State Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. will be holding mobile office hours outside of Wasserman’s Supermarket in Kew Gardens Hills this month to distribute free masks and hand sanitizer.

On Thursday, October 29, Addabbo will be out front of Wasserman’s, located at 72-51 Main Street, from 4:30 to 6 p.m. where he will be handing out free masks and hand sanitizer provided by the State.

“The science shows that wearing a mask and cleaning your hands are two of the most effective ways to combat contracting and spreading the Coronavirus. That is why I will be giving away masks and hand sanitizer to help the public be able to protect themselves and their loved ones,” Addabbo said. “It is even more vital to be here in Kew Gardens Hills as they are currently in a Red Zone, meaning the infection rate has been increasing. I hope to see residents take advantage of this giveaway, as well as the free COVID-19 testing rapid site set up at the Kew Gardens Hills Library. Together we can defeat this virus and get back to a sense of normalcy in our communities.”

Queens Public Library has partnered with NYC Health + Hospitals to bring a COVID-19 rapid-testing site to the Kew Gardens Hills Library, located at 72-33 Vleigh Place, and is open every day from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. until Sunday, November 1.
