Free COVID-19 test kits and N95 masks will be distributed to residents Saturday morning at a drive-through event in the parking lot outside the county jail in Riverside.

Tests and masks will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis, with a limit of two tests per household, said Assemblywoman Jodi Giglio, who is hosting the event with Suffolk Sheriff Errol Toulon.

Tests and masks will be available while supplies last, she said.

The distribution is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. and will end at 11 a.m., or sooner if supplies run out earlier.
