Now we are making masks with clear windows for special ed teachers and speech therapists!
Our priority will go to teachers and therapists who are already in the field.
Nurses treating COVID-19 patients are forced to wear the same N95 mask for a week.
Other staff in hospitals often do not even get a real mask to wear. (April 9th LOHUD )
Nursing homes are having trouble getting masks from their suppliers, as are group homes, etc.
We have been inundated by requests by healthcare workers to help them keep them safe, by offering them fabric covers for their N95, which we improved to include filter pockets for when the N95 runs out.
Recently, we also learned that choosing the right fabric will allow a fabric mask to offer the same or even better protection than surgical masks, and it is reusable and washable. (April 9 New York Times )
Your donation will allow many sewists to continue with their work of love.
