Washington Teens to Supply Over 30,000 Masks to Frontline Medical Workers


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.”
