Tri-Cities COVID-19 PPE

A group of volunteers throughout the Tri-Cities area of Nebraska are working tirelessly to make and deliver faceshields to organizations who need them.

This project was originally launched by members of the Amateur Radio Association of Nebraska (W0WWV), but has since grown far beyond that, across the Tri-Cities area, and includes volunteers from all sorts of backgrounds, not just amateur radio!

Item Information

  • An alternative faceshield design. Each Kit request includes one frame, and two plastic shields. The shields can be re-sterilized and reused.
  • These are mainly for dentists or other professions where loupes or other equipment must be able to be worn under the shield.
  • These take more time and materials to produce, so if possible, use the regular faceshields, but these are available if needed!
  • Full information sheet included with each delivery
  • Instructions for Use
  • Quality Control Protocol
  • Prusa faceshield
  • A small plastic frame with hooks to strap mask elastic bands around, rather than around the ears to avoid soreness.
  • Ear-saver mask strap
