Thanks to all of you, our Village efforts are helping communities to continue masking indoors as recommended by the CDC. As we surpass 172,000 (fabric and N95) masks donated, we have helped communities greatly reduce transmission of COVID-19 through this most important public health action.
Children ages 5-11 will start receiving their vaccination shots. That is such wonderful news to keep children safe. Continued masking is recommended to alleviate a winter surge so that we can plan for our holiday gatherings. The most comfortable, snugly fit, two layer mask, is still most recommended.
We have sewn 1,051 children’s masks for our Mask The Children Challenge. We are already 25% to our goal! Our progress was helped this week by Melissa C.’s donation of 150 Crayola children’s masks. Although the nine Bay Area Counties have released guidelines towards a future goal of lifting COVID-19 mask mandates, our community, particularly young unvaccinated children will be wearing masks for a while. We thank you for your efforts! Requests for masks are still pouring in. Your Village work helps us fill the need.
