When the first U.S. case of the coronavirus was confirmed in Washington back in January, members of PROTEC17 jumped into action. From epidemiologists to health educators, all hands were on deck to try to track, contain, and quell fears about the disease known as COVID-19, which results from the virus.
At the same time, PROTEC17 jumped into action to help support the nearly 10,000 members of the Professional and Technical Employees Local 17 — PROTEC17, for short. PROTEC17 consists of workers from nursing, social work, health specialty, and other essential front-line industries working tirelessly to help us all fight COVID-19. Shortly after the first case of COVID-19 was confirmed, we here at ASTIFaceMask.com were able to work with the leaders at PROTEC17 by supplying anti-microbial, reusable face masks for more than a thousand members of PROTEC17.
We are so proud to collaborate with so many of our health professionals, at PROTEC17 and across the world, who work tirelessly to push back the health effects of this awful disease. Their efforts and the efforts of all of you who practice social distancing, stay at home, and wear your masks will help flatten the curve so we can all return to our new normal in the near future.
