Central Peninsula Hospital announced they are welcoming fabric homemade masks from the community as they continue planning for the coronavirus spread. In a release from CPH, there has been an enormous outpouring from the community to help prepare for more cases of COVID-19. While fabric masks are not to be used in the care of COVID-19 patients, according to the CDC, fabric masks are a crisis response option when other supplies become exhausted. Fabric masks are also helpful in other areas of patient care as supplies of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) are depleted.
