DCHC Accepting Hand Sewn Masks
Davis County Hospital & Clinics (DCHC) is committed to providing the highest quality care and ensuring the safety of our patients, employees, providers, and visitors. We are continuing to monitor the evolving situation with the coronavirus (COVID-19) and are taking the necessary steps to ensure we are fully prepared to care for patients, in accordance with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and in partnership with our local and state health departments.
DCHC is now accepting donations of hand sewn face masks.
DCHC is graciously accepting donations of hand sewn face masks. In order to make the masks as effective as possible, please consider following this guidance on making homemade masks for healthcare workers; no specific fabric color or pattern is necessary.
Please drop off masks at the DCHC Outpatient/Clinic (B3) Entrance during normal business hours (M-F, 8-5). You may press the ‘Assistance’ button located on the island and someone will be out shortly to retrieve the masks from you. Otherwise, you may drop the box of donated masks off with our staff member located just inside the door.
If you are able to donate factory-made personal protective equipment (N95 masks, gowns or face shields), please contact Davis County Public Health at 641-664-3629 to coordinate delivering your donation.
Thank you for your generosity and thoughtfulness of our staff during this time.
If you have general questions on COVID-19, please dial 2-1-1. If you begin to experience symptoms and have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19 or if you live in or have recently been in an area with ongoing spread of COVID-19, call your primary care provider before coming in.
