HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- Thousands of people in Henrico are getting COVID-19 personal protective equipment thanks to a new state program.

Over the past two days, volunteers and county leaders handed out 20,000 reusable cloth face masks, bottles of hand sanitizer, and care kits.

The goal is to get resources to underserved and historically disadvantaged neighborhoods, and target areas most at risk of contracting the virus.
