Healthcare professionals in Laramie County need masks/PPE

By  | 

CHEYENNE, Wy. (Wyoming News Now) Cheyenne Regional Medical Center and the Laramie County Emergency Operations Center put out a plea for masks Thursday morning.

In a release sent to news outlets, CRMC and the EOC say both facilities are now accepting mask donations.

For folks wanting to donate to the EOC, please email emaresourcerequest@laramiecounty.com

CRMC made a webpage for donation information and also provided instructions for those able to make homemade masks. That information can be found at www.cheyenneregional.org/patients-visitors/covid-19-information/donation-information/

If you are making masks of any type for CRMC, please deliver them to the CRMC Foundation office, located at 408 E. 23rd St. in Cheyenne (across Evans Ave. from CRMC). There is a donation box with instructions on the porch of the house.

CRMC is also accepting donations of personal protective equipment (PPE), such as N95 masks, gowns, face shields, and gloves. The one-quarter inch wide elastic needed to make the masks is in short supply also. Any color – any amount is accepted to the foundation.
