MEMORIAL HOSPITAL ACCEPTING
HAND-SEWN FACE MASKS

As potential shortages of masks and other personal protective equipment (PPE) are being reported in the news, the hospital has received several messages from members of the community asking if homemade masks could be accepted.

Memorial Hospital will accept cloth face masks to help with the national shortage during the COVID-19 outbreak.  If you or someone you know is able, please consider sewing face masks for the hospital/clinics/senior services. These masks will be used in accordance with CDC guidelines.

For those who wish to make masks, we are sharing popular mask patterns. We are not requiring a particular pattern be used as all of them will be helpful.
