Fresco y Más, Harveys Supermarket and Winn-Dixie pharmacies are set to distribute over two million free N95 masks as early as Friday, according to Southeastern Grocers.

Grocery chain officials announced Monday that it will be partnering with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to distribute the masks on a first-come, first-served basis.

The distribution will be limited to three masks per individual, the grocer said.

“While store delivery days and times will vary, all of our in-store pharmacy locations are projected to have the N95 masks available by Monday, Jan. 31, while supplies last. We ask for patience and understanding from our customers as we work to help protect our communities,” Meredith Hurley, director of public relations and community with Southeastern Grocers, said in a release on Thursday.

Those interested can pick up their N95 mask at one of the three supermarkets’ in-store pharmacies.
