Many Milwaukeeans are choosing to wear masks when going out into public, which may lead to diminishing the spread of COVID-19. To meet the need of the community, many local designers, artists and makers are selling or donating masks.
Please note some of these makers are producing small runs and / or finding it difficult to receive the materials needed for mask-making, so please be understanding.
