Several local community members have taken on the task of crafting homemade masks to aid medical staff with shortages of protective gear. The masks can be made in a variety of ways, such as simple cotton fabric or even using vacuum bags. The masks are being donated to hospitals in the area. Jennifer Harger’s masks, above, are made of three layers of cotton with a pocket for health care staff to insert a filter.
