Helping With COVID-19 Crisis

Do you want to help your community's COVID-19 response? Maker Nexus has several projects you can do. We will help you coordinate your response. Pick a project below and read the details. We have instructions and project plans on our wiki (find the link in each project section).

Keep in mind, if you are sick, just stay home and get better!

Face Masks

Face masks are used to help prevent the spread of the disease. These masks are worn by people who are infected, or might be infected. You should wear one if you are coughing or sneezing.

Local hospitals are giving these to patients when the arrive to limit their ability to spread disease.

These masks are made of cotton. They have elastic or ties that go around the ears. 

They are washable. 

You can make these at home with a sewing machine. 

Scrubs

Scrubs are protective clothing nurses and doctors wear when treating patients. They can be easily changed and sanitized as needed. Hospital supplies are beginning to run low. While they prefer to use commercially manufactured ones, in this emergency they are looking for alternative sources.

The scrubs need to be sewn from new fabric (no recycling of bedsheets etc) and 100% cotton, which can be washed at high temperatures, is breathable and comfortable to wear.

Face Shields

Face shields are used by health care professionals to protect them when working with patients. Hospital supplies are running low. While they prefer to use commercially manufactured ones, in this emergency they are looking for alternative sources.

These shields are made on a 3D printer. If you have a 3D printer, you can make these. We have several at Maker Nexus that will be running as long as we have supplies. We need volunteers come in to service the printing. We also need volunteers to assemble the final shields. We will deliver them to local hospitals.
