WATAUGA — AppHealthCare is offering free KN95 masks for anyone in the community who wants one while supplies last. 

As of 4:45 p.m. on Jan. 13, AppHealthCare still had masks available.

There is a limit of five masks per person or 20 for a household. For any business request, the limit will be 50. AppHealthCare stated limits are in place to ensure the health department is able to widely distribute masks across the community. Masks are available until supplies run out.

The Ashe office is located at  413 McConnell St, Jefferson.

The Alleghany office is located at 157 Health Services Road, Sparta.

Meanwhile, Appalachian State won't give any out for faculty/staff/students that they are forcing to to be in-person. Once again, the Appalachian State administration under Sheri continues to put the health, safety, and well-being of our entire community at risk in order to save a few bucks.

Apparently, the word is that Sheri does not even live in Boone anymore, she's got an Apt. in Hickory. She's prolly jumped ship because 1) she knows what a dangerous environment she's created and she doesn't want to get sick in the midst of the unmitigated disaster she's created, and 2) she is *terrified* of her students and employees who she knows she's pushed to the edge; all because she values money and her personal career over anything else.
