Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region and Southwest Missouri is collecting cloth masks for patients when they visit our health centers. We're asking supporters to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by making and donating these masks for our staff and patients.
The CDC currently recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings, and we would like to provide our patients with cloth masks upon arrival. To prevent the spread of COVID-19, we are implementing universal masking at all of our health centers. As stay-at-home orders end across the country, it's more important than ever to ensure the health and safety of our staff, patients and the broader communities we serve.
Cloth face coverings are intended help reduce the spread of droplets from the nose and mouth of asymptomatic patients, who may not know they are infected. To donate masks, please coordinate with our Community Engagement team by sending an email to [email protected]. We are collecting masks in the St. Louis Region, Southwest Missouri and Southern Illinois.
