Wagoner County Sheriff's Office is requesting the Public's assistance with making cloth masks.
The Wagoner County Sheriff's Office is requesting the Public's assistance. The Sheriff's Office is looking for someone that can sew fabric masks from our community as we prepare for COVID-19. The Directions will be included on how to make the cloth masks that will cover the N95 Mask that deputies are currently using. Orders for standard/disposable masks are on long back-orders, due to both demand and supply chain issues. Other First Responders across the country are reporting the same supply concerns.
According to the CDC, fabric masks are a crisis response option when other supplies have been exhausted. Prior to modern disposable masks, washable fabric masks were standard use for hospitals. The Sheriff's Office will be able to sterilize these masks and use them repeatedly as needed. While it's less than ideal, we want to do our best to protect our staff and citizens during this pandemic."
