As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to spread, there is a constant need for help to keep patients and staff safe, investigate treatment options, and express appreciation to those on the front lines. Here are some ways you can help.
Many industries outside of health care use personal protective equipment and Cooper is seeking assistance from companies that have an excess supply of the following
- N95 respirator masks
- Disposable surgical masks
- Surgical gowns
- Eye shields

If you have had COVID-19 and are now fully recovered, you may be eligible to donate plasma to benefit patients who are currently undergoing treatment. Individuals interested in making plasma donations should contact the American Red Cross online or call 1.800.RED.CROSS.The site includes required criteria for making donations.
Cooper currently has an adequate supply of masks for its health care workers, however they remain in short supply nationwide due to COVID-19.
Cooper is looking to be proactive in addressing the possibility of future supply challenges and is calling on all sewing volunteers to help make masks for use by patients and potentially by staff.
