Area hospitals like Door County Medical Center are renewing their call for volunteers to make cloth masks for visitors and staff members. Last week the Centers for Disease Control recommended that all Americans wear a facial cloth covering in public settings. That has become even more important in hospital settings where patients could be fending off COVID-19 and other illnesses. Door County Medical Center Logistics Manager Andrew Starr salutes community members that have been able to turn a few pieces of cloth and a little elastic into a potential lifesaver.
Door County Medical Center is asking people to drop off their donated cloth masks at the emergency and main entrances of the hospital between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
