Honestly….either people are completely overreacting or not reacting to this pandemic as seriously as they should be. There is very little in between.
Stop stealing, buying, and hoarding N95 masks. Hospital workers desperately need them. PPE supplies are dangerously low and are needed now more than ever.
I am currently laid off, I work as a peds care tech for one little patient and they are quarantined from the outside world. During this down time I am going to try to get my sewing machine up and running so I can make masks for all of my nurse and tech friends who need them. Is this the best option? No, but it’s better than the scarves a lot of my nurse friends are having to use as makeshift masks.
If you have unopened boxes of masks that you felt the need to hoard…do everyone a favor and donate them to your local hospital.
