It is no question that the nurses, doctors, scientists, and hospital staff are the heroes
protecting the world from the horrific effects of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), but there are also
some people with no medical or scientific education that are doing everything they can to help
during the ongoing pandemic.
People like Sheri Yeisely, an interior decorator who specializes in window treatments in
Bethlehem Pennsylvania, are sewing masks and gowns for hospitals who have run out of
supplies. This small sacrifice that people have begun to make is already helping a large number
of hospitals, and thousands of masks and gowns have already been donated.
Utah residents also have begun to participate in this beneficial act, and all are encouraged
to help in the creation of masks and hospital gowns. According to the University of Utah Health
(attheu.utah.edu), homemade cloth masks can help slow the spread of COVID-19. “Such masks
– combined with appropriate physical or social distancing – may help slow the spread of
COVID-19 in our community.”
All members of the community are encouraged to help stop the Coronavirus, and this
includes social distancing and help sewing gowns and medical masks if possible. As the state of
Utah continues to adapt to the changes that the Coronavirus brings, all residents are motivated to
help stop the spread until life goes back to normal.
