The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) highly recommends that people wear face coverings in public. The idea is to prevent people who might be carrying the virus, but don’t have any symptoms, from infecting anyone else. Face coverings should not be a substitute for social distancing and are an additional public safety measure. Watch Ahtna’s Safety, Health & Environmental Program (SHEP) Director Drew Laughlin make a face covering (no sewing needed) in a few easy steps using a bandana by playing the video below or visiting https://vimeo.com/415552828/ddb2363012.
Ahtna put a call out on Facebook to Ahtna shareholder sewers, makers and crafters to supply handmade face coverings. Thank you to Ahtna shareholders Roberta Bissell and Audrey Morlock for responding to the call and helping to supply our offices with face coverings. If you are interested in purchasing your own face coverings, you can reach Roberta via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and Audrey at (907) 775-3355.
