Hospital requests more masks needed in community; Launder and reuse them everywhere

Face masks are required for all patients and visitors at Veterans Memorial Hospital in Waukon. Everyone is asked to wear a mask when they enter the facility. If they do not have a mask already, they are given one of these reusable masks to wear each time they return to the hospital.

With the limited supply of masks, it is requested that patients and visitors take their masks home and launder them in hot water and dry them in a hot dryer, then wear them over and over again. These masks can be worn anywhere anyone goes in the community as well and do not just need to be worn at the hospital.

Veterans Memorial Hospital greatly appreciates all of the thousands of mask donations they have received and look forward to future donations as fall approaches. Masks can be dropped off at the front entrance of Veterans Memorial Hospital. For more information, call Erin Berns at Veterans Memorial Hospital at 563-568-3411 Ext. 443.
