  1. I want to make face masks for Swedish Hosp nurses and doctors. I want to know what kind of face masks I should make. I was given COVIDdonation@swedish.com and sent the same kind of question this morning, but I have not heards from this e0mail address.
    I can probably make 100 masks.

    1. Have a CPAP machine with disposable tubing, filter, nasal mask that is available if appropriate, perhaps helpful when respirator not available. Would like it cleaned and returned after the need has passed sans tubing etc.

    2. If you haven’t been able to hear back from the hospital yet, try going through the group Crafters Against Covid-19 Seattle on Facebook.
