Oregon residents assemble 11k masks for health-care workers

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Hospital workers in Oregon are astounded at the community response to an effort to provide those on the front lines of the coronavirus fight with protective masks. On March 26, Salem Health, which runs two hospital and several clinics in and around Oregon’s capital city, announced it would hand out kits for people to make masks. By Friday, the last day for dropoff, 10,942 assembled masks had been returned. Meanwhile, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown’s office says that some of the masks the Trump administration has provided are unusable.
