Can you sew?
Here is a notice from local hospital DKH
Keeping our colleagues, patients and families safe is critical during these unprecedented times.
Thank you for your generosity and offers to donate personal protective equipment (PPE). We are overwhelmed with gratitude.
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused international shortages of critical personal protective equipment (PPE). Day Kimball Healthcare is accepting donations of these items, specifically:
Disposable head covers
N95 respirator face masks
Disposable face masks
Disinfection wipes and liquids
General-purpose hand cleaners
Donated items must be in original, unopened packaging.
We are now accepting homemade masks as well! Prior to starting this project, please consider: Have you been in contact with anyone suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19 in the past two weeks? Do you have fever, cough or shortness of breath?
If you are able to answer "NO" to both questions, then proceed with making masks. If you answer "YES" to either or both questions, please do not make masks. If you are experiencing cough, fever, or shortness of breath and have a concern that you may have COVID-19 please call your primary care provider.
