What does each team provide?
In Wales these are now mandated for use on public transport. They are encouraged in general and especially in shops or crowded areas.
They are very common in Asia to decrease risk.
While handmade masks don't offer the same filtration or fit as commercial masks they are a simple way to reduce risk. Hand-made and 3-ply (non-medical) masks avoid the risk of purchasing supplies which are needed for the medical profession.
Locally, Dyfi Valley Health have asked all paitents who visit them to wear a facemask.
If you would like to make your own, Ann has put together a guide on making a 3 ply mask.
Facemasks are available by donation in eighteen shops in the Dyfi Valley. In Aberdyfi at the Post Office and Village Stores / Costcutter. In Tywyn, they're available at the GP's, Nick's basics, Siop-y-Gornel, Pendre Garden Centre, Coop, Spar and Bryn y Mor Caravan Park shop. The village shop in Llwyngwril. In Corris, facemasks have been available outside the Corris Institute. In Machynlleth, handmade masks for the public continue to be provided by Cassian and Jay, each with a unique design. Machynlleth Soft-Mask maskers, now have masks available (by donation) in Literary Cat books, Siop Blodyn Tatws, The Store (old school), Coop and the Library. In Tre' r Ddol, masks can be obtained from the Cletwr.
Immediately collaborating internationally and working to meet local needs. To ensure availability of supply we took three paths in parrelel. We produced visors via fabrication, 3D printing and laser cutting.
Once we were setup, we met the needs of our local town within a week, in the second week, we managed to also meet requests from the Dyfi Valley including many care homes in Aberystwyth.
Our visors newsletter, Vision is now available First Edition, Second Edition, Third Edition, Fourth Edition, Fifth Edition, Sixth Edition.
Documentation is available - for the 3D printed visors and our laser cut visors.
Thanks for the kind offers to support us, as requested we have now setup a Paypal account so people can do that.
