- Walgreens said it will have N95 masks at participating locations starting as early as Friday, Jan. 28.
- Walmart expects to start its free N95 mask distribution by the second week of February at stores and Sam’s Club locations.

White House coronavirus response coordinator Jeff Zients said Friday it was the “largest deployment of personal protective equipment in U.S. history.”
