We’ve set up a mask donation station in the south entrance! If you’ve made cloth masks you can put them in the box. We’d appreciate each mask being individually bagged if possible. They will be distributed around town for those in need.
We also have a box with t-shirts and fabric for masks for those of you who may not have all the materials you need to create them.
View a detailed PDF on instructions and where these masks will go.

We have an important bonus video for Art @ Home with Miss Beth! With this video, Miss Beth goes over how to sew your own cloth face mask.
The CDC recently began recommending that ALL people begin wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies). This is because studies are showing that a significant portion of individuals with coronavirus lack symptoms (“asymptomatic”) and that even those who eventually develop symptoms (“pre-symptomatic”) can transmit the virus to others before showing symptoms. This means that the virus can spread between people interacting in close proximity—for example, speaking, coughing, or sneezing—even if those people are not exhibiting symptoms.
Please note that the cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical masks or N-95 respirators. Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance.
