Delivery services of all kinds have risen in popularity during the coronavirus lockdowns — from mystery book bags to cocktails, everything is deliverable these days. Given this trend, it makes sense that not only food, but the truly essential goods are also available for delivery — in Michigan, you can now get condoms delivered by mail.
The state’s health department is launching a new free condom delivery service to prevent accidental pregnancies and STD transmission during the coronavirus lockdown. The condoms-by-mail program will replace the free condom giveaways Michigan counties had been offering at bars and government buildings that are now closed.
Lynn Sutfin, a spokeswoman for the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, told MLive.com, “We feel that it is extremely important during this public health crisis to continue to support our communities in protecting themselves against unintended pregnancy, STIs, and HIV.”
To receive your free condoms in the mail, you must request a delivery via email at MDHHS-FreeCondoms@Michigan.gov. Packages will include 10 condoms and, as an added bonus, 10 packets of lubrication. And don’t worry, packages will arrive unmarked to spare you from any potential embarrassment if you happen to be quarantining with your parents.
