Now that our emergency PPE production campaign has come to an end, having produced 7,105 face shields distributed to almost 200 organizations across Northumberland, commercial supply is becoming more widely available in the marketplace. We wanted to highlight a local manufacturer, Protoplast Inc., who are selling face shields produced at their facility in Cobourg. For more information, please contact Erin Botrie at 905-372-6451 ext. 110.
For two solid months, our producer alliance was the sole source of face shields for front-line workers in Northumberland. Looking back, it is hard to believe that our community faced critical shortages of personal protective equipment, and that such an urgent need would be met by a spontaneous effort of passionate volunteers.
Honoured to rise in the Legislature today to speak about the remarkable work being done by the Northumberland Producers Alliance. This remarkable ingenuity, collaborative spirit and volunteerism is what makes our community great. To everyone involved, thank you for rising to the occasion to support our front line workers!
