Volunteer to sew masks
There are many organizations in our community that need cloth masks right now. These include nursing homes, homelessness service organizations, food banks, grocery stores, restaurants, and more. Although these organizations are working in close contact with potentially vulnerable populations every day, they are not generally eligible for N95 or other manufactured masks, which must be prioritized for frontline healthcare providers working with COVID-19 patients.
Members of the general public should also be wearing some kind of cloth covering over the nose and mouth whenever going out to perform essential activities, per Center for Disease Control and guidelines. As a reminder, cloth masks are NOT a replacement for social distancing and proper hand-washing.
Please read this page for more information/instructions about sewing face masks and sanitation guidelines.
