We are now accepting donations of homemade masks at GHC!

Any non-medical, homemade masks donated to the Group Health Centre must meet the following criteria in order to be redistributed:

  • allow for easy breathing
  • fit securely to the head with ties or ear loops
  • maintain their shape after washing and drying
  • be comfortable and not require frequent adjustment
  • be made of at least 2 layers of tightly woven material fabric (such as cotton or linen)
  • be large enough to completely and comfortably cover the nose and mouth without gaping

 

When worn properly, a person wearing a non-medical mask or face covering can reduce the spread of their own infectious respiratory droplets.

 

To arrange a drop off of homemade mask donations, call the Trust Fund office at 705-759-5530.
