Masks

Protective Masks – Resources and Articles
While hospitals are running desperately short of N95 surgical masks and respirators, many are looking for creative ways to secure these needed supplies. In some communities, crafters are banding together to sew face masks and donating for health care workers. In others, new partnerships are being forged to acquire needed supplies as the coronavirus pandemic intensifies.

"Wearing a mask is about caring for your friends and neighbors and follows Christ’s simple commandment to love one another. It’s an easy, safe and effective way to protect everyone for the common good. Wearing a mask as recommended by the CDC will make a big difference in slowing the spread of COVID-19. Let’s do this together for each other." - Sr. Mary Haddad, RSM
