CCH masks for coronavirusSocial or physical distancing is the first measure in personal protection; however, when caring for sick patients healthcare workers also need personal protective equipment (PPE), which includes face shields, isolation gowns, masks, and caps that are in short supply all across the United States.

While Campbell County Health is actively conserving the PPE, we also know that the citizens of Campbell County, Wyoming have huge hearts and want to help. Therefore, we have partnered with numerous individuals and businesses in town for materials, supplies and support.

As many of you well know, masks, isolation gowns, caps and other personal protective equipment (PPE) is in short supply throughout the nation. Masks are one way to help medical professionals and healthcare providers reduce exposure. Some will be wearing the N95 respirator style mask, others will wear the PAPR hood style gear and yet others will wear the handiwork of our community. The cloth masks will also be used with patients and parents/guardians or support people (for right now). These masks will be sterilized and reprocessed for repeat use.

Regardless of the pattern used, all donations will be distributed for use.

Please Note: CCH does ask the community to use the drop sites listed below; please do not bring them to Campbell County Memorial Hospital or Public Health.

  • 100% tightly-woven cotton fabric is preferred; the fabric must be prewashed to prevent shrinkage
  • All fabric items will be laundered at very high temperatures and possibly bleached, therefore, lighter colors are best.
