Face masks in short supply

Residents in Door and Kewaunee counties are having the same issues getting face masks to avert the possibility of contract COVID-19 or other respiratory illnesses.  They're in short supply.  Jake Blazkovec, who owns the Bay Hometown Pharmacy in Sturgeon Bay, says suppliers cannot keep up with demand.  He adds that some customers are looking for other options for their peace of mind.



Such prevention efforts, however, may not be that effective.  Sue Powers, with the Door County Public Health Department, says there are simpler ways to stop the spread of all respiratory illnesses.



Powers also recommends frequent hand washing with soap and water instead of relying only on hand sanitizers, which she says are not as effective as soap and warm water.
