Are you accepting donation of homemade fabric/cloth masks?
Yes. Members of the public may sew and donate cloth masks so that we may conserve and preserve our supplies of surgical masks and PPE for our frontline healthcare workers who need it most.
Home sewers are reminded to practice social distancing, hand hygiene, and not work when sick when producing masks for donation.
For fabric selection, studies show that cotton-blend masks can optimize both effectiveness and breathability to ensure people can comfortably wear them for extended periods of time.
Craft supply retailer Joann Fabrics posted instructions for homemade masks.
Does the use of hand-sewn/cloth masks comply with CC guidelines?
Yes. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated its guidance on “Strategies for Optimizing the Supply of Facemasks” and recommends optimizing the supply of PPE masks for healthcare workers and limiting use by patients.
Can individuals provide any other homemade supplies?
Yes. Hand-sewn gowns, caps and booties may also be donated.
