Janesville hospital asks for homemade facemasks

SSM Health in Janesville has handed out about four-thousand simple cloth facemasks to clinic and hospital visitors since the beginning of the pandemic, and now Foundation Director Donna Hohensee says they’re running short. The hospital and clinic requires all visitors to wear a mask. Hohensee says SSM is asking for donations to keep up with the demand of about one-hundred masks per day. She calls the need critical because personal protective equipment used by staff is also in short supply. SSM is accepting donated masks of all sizes, shapes, and colors.
