The Washington Youth for Masks initiative started by Angelina Chin, an Issaquah High junior, is raising funds and securing personal protective equipment (PPE) for frontline medical professionals in their battle against COVID-19.

The page cites a King5 News article covering Washington’s current danger to healthcare workers stating, “The Washington State Nurses Association (WSNA), which represents nearly 20,000 workers, said it’s hearing from concerned members– nurses being told to reuse papers masks, being instructed to not wear masks unless there is a confirmed coronavirus case and being told to re-use face shields without guidance on proper cleaning.”
