Thanks to the sewing skills of MCO Joann Johnson, the Wicomico County Department of Corrections has assembled a team of inmates to sew protective masks for our healthcare workers. These masks use MERV-13 filters combined with carbon sheeting to mirror the efficiency of N95 respirators. We hope to distribute our first donations to healthcare workers by the end of this week.
In times like this it is special to be able to tap into skill sets such as these. Our thanks to those who made this a reality.
