How Did We Ensure Masks Are Sanitized and Safe

In order to ensure safe and sanitized masks, there was an initial verification by the volunteer on the registration site followed by a health status phone call prior to volunteers picking up kits. Once the kits were dropped off, they were in a 72-hour minimum quarantine period before being distributed to the community.
