OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Health officials say wearing a mask in public could be the key to slowing the virus down, but for some masks have been hard to find.

This weekend, the Douglas County Health Department and Omaha Fire Department are teaming up to help. They will hold free mask pick up events at two locations Saturday.

One will be at St. Peter and Paul Church near 36th and X from 1pm-3pm. The other will be at Holy Name Church near Fontenelle Blvd, and Maple.
