ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital is accepting donations of hand-sewn masks to be used in non-patient care.
"While the masks are not medical grade and cannot be used by health care providers as protection from COVID-19 during patient-provider interactions, these may be helpful in non-patient care settings to contain coughs and to help remind people not to touch their face," the hospital said on Facebook.
The hospital provided these instructions for the hand-sewn masks.
