Several hospitals are calling on the public to make masks. Healthcare workers are not only dealing with a shortage of masks but also surgical gowns and protective eyewear.
Hospital workers in Washington state have been making protective medical gear out of office supplies and other run-of-the-mill materials as they deal with a severe shortage of equipment needed to care for patients who may have COVID-19.
