Community Project – Sewing masks for Healthcare
Our local healthcare leaders are doing everything they can to stay ahead of potential challenges in serving patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. Based on the experience of other communities and knowledge of back-orders from medical supply companies, our contacts at Guthrie Health have said they would accept home made fabric face masks for health workers and patients to use in the event of a shortage.
Note: Guthrie does not now have a shortage of masks; this is simply a preparedness measure that involves volunteers looking for a way to support our healthcare systems during this ever-changing crisis.
