The COVID-19 pandemic creates new challenges daily for ARHS and for our patients. We are fortunate to have so many in our High Country community ask us how they can help in the response to these unprecedented times. Here, we’ve listed several ways you can help. We are grateful for the outpouring of support from community members, local businesses, and organizations so far.

Make and donate homemade cloth face masks

Photo: Staff-with-Donated-MasksOn Friday, April 4th, the CDC made an announcement regarding the use of simple cloth face masks and recommends individuals wear homemade cloth face masks in addition to adhering to the 6-foot social distance requirements and frequent hand washing to slow the spread of the virus.

ARHS employees working in non-clinical areas are encouraged to wear homemade cloth face masks, and ARHS will continue to accept homemade cloth mask donations

Donors can drop these items off at the front entrance of Charles A. Cannon, Jr. Memorial Hospital in Linville or the security checkpoint at Watauga Medical Center.

For more information about donating masks please contact Brian Whitfield at bwhitfield@apprhs.org or (828) 262-9105.
