A week after Bronxites railed against a city plan that excluded wide swaths of the borough from its mask giveaway program, officials announced a slate of new distribution sites.

Five Bronx locations have been added to the 11 Mayor Bill de Blasio originally announced April 30. Among the new sites: Van Cortlandt Park, Haffen Park, and Pelham Bay Park.

The city will continue handing out face coverings in participating parks free of charge through May 11th, officials said.
