I think we have a need a way of producing enough D.I.Y masks.
Making temporary visors is really quite simple as outline in the video Health and safety protocol collation and discussion thread - We can just use plastic folders / peoples glasses.
Masks present a bit more of a challenge. I think the best option in terms of balancing the benefits and utility and accesibility reusable washable masks are the best option for us. With these we can equip volunteers in the kitchen with and also the delivery drivers, but not detract from any supplies which would otherwise be going to healthcare workers. My gran in denmark and my aunt in italy have been busy making some so I can ask for the templates otherwise there are lots available on youtube one of wich I’ve linked to in the protocol doc https://pad.riseup.net/p/uzNEKQEhBt1mRrG_xAI9
However to do this we need people who have access to sewing machines and the requsite skills to get busy! i think we could definitely fund some materials from the fundraiser for this so really just looking for volunteers. I don’t have the skills unfortunately.
We could also promote this campaign and take photos of the making process and other D.I.T options and make clear the difference between community use of D.I.Y masks and professional use of proper masks and that the two don’t necessarily conflict with each other as has been suggested in narratives from the govt.
