YES, WE COULD USE YOUR HOMEMADE, SEWN MASKS.

The shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE), is certainly a challenge for our staff.  As such, homemade masks meeting certain specifications can be used to help with this concern.  Just as in the world wars of our nation's past, those back home worked hard to send supplies to those in the fight.  You can do this for us, right here in Marshall.
