FARGO — Essentia Health continues to need the public's help in securing face masks to help keep patients and staff safe.

Essentia Health has collected roughly 2,000 masks in Fargo and is in need of more. The coronavirus is spread via droplet transmission, so it’s crucially important to cover as many mouths and noses as possible. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention encourages people to wear face coverings in public settings, especially where social distancing might not be possible.

Donations can be dropped off on Wednesdays and Thursdays between the hours of 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the South University Clinic, 1702 South University Drive, Fargo. Donors are asked to pull up into the valet parking loop off University Drive. Drivers should remain in their vehicles and wait for site staff to collect their donations.

Step-by-step instructions for preferred mask designs can be found at EssentiaHealth.org/masks.
