How to make coronavirus mask: Yale New Haven Hospital sends call out for public’s help making, delivering face masks


Conn. (WTNH) — Yale New Haven Hospital has put a request out for more face masks for their health workers and patients due to a shortage amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Yale New Haven Health has put a call out asking anyone who knows how to sew or is willing to sew to make face masks for the health workers, caregivers, patients, and community.

If you would like to donate hand-sewn masks, they ask that you use this pocket pattern here.

According to “Close to Home,” a sewing supplies shop in Connecticut, “If you have already sewn masks that do not follow the pocket mask pattern, YNHHS will still accept those and redirect them to shelters being set up for our community’s homeless population.”

Donations of sewn masks are being accepted Monday through Thursday from 10 am to 2 pm at: Yale New Haven Health System Regional Operations Center – Attn: PPE Donations 600 Derby Ave. (Route 34)West Haven, CT 06516. They may also be mailed to the same address.
