3D Printed Face Masks
In cooperation with our partners throughout the Borderland, El Paso Fighting COVID is producing 3D printed face masks to protect health care workers and those at higher risk of infection.
The masks are made of durable plastic and can be sanitized with warm, soapy water or disinfecting solution and reused.
The central, square insert holds a piece of filter material, which should be replaced after each use. An elastic band at the top and bottom holds the mask in place.
Note: At this time, El Paso Fighting COVID cannot provide filter material or elastic bands.
Angels of El Paso is a volunteer organization that is sewing fabric masks for hospitals and medical offices. To make a donation of material or supplies, to volunteer, or to request fabric masks, use the form on their site.
|The El Paso Community College Philosophy Club is also sewing fabric masks, which they are donating exclusively to homeless shelters and organizations that support the elderly. For more information, visit them on Facebook.|
