Hello, As you all know, missing equipment like masks and protective gowns for health workers are a huge issue during the current corona virus (COVID19) crisis. Most of us skydivers have patched their jumpsuits and stuff in the past and know how to operate a sewing machine, or just needle and threat. We need as many masks and gowns as possible - and as soon as possible. The Johns Hopkins University (who I work for) is working on a design for both and on plans what material to use. It should be ready in a few days. Are there volunteers to help with the prototype testing right now to start mass producing (whatever you can so) masks after receiving instructions Are there gear/jumpsuit manufacturers who are interested in doing this commercially for a while? Can somebody of you provide a list of all / most / many manufacturers of gear, jumpsuits, repair shops etc. so that I can contact them directly? Obviously, this is a pretty urgent request. If you can help in any way, please send me an email to HelpSewingMasks@gmail.com. You might receive a reply either from that address or from my Johns Hopkins address. Please forward this request in any way you think it might be helpful. Thank you all, I really hope the skydive community can step up here and help with a task that is extremely important for all of us. I hope you are all hanging in there and deal well with the social distancing and all other things we have to get used to for a while. Stay safe, stay healthy, and all the best! Barbara
