(ABC 6 News) - Mayo Clinic Health Systems in Austin and Albert Lea announced on Thursday it will begin accepting donations of homemade sewn cloth masks that are created following CDC guidelines.
Cloth face masks do not replace social distancing measures and do not offer filtration, but can help prevent the spread of COVID-19 to others.
Donations will be accepted from 10 a.m. to noon weekdays at drive-up collection bins located outside Mayo Clinic Health System locations in Albert Lea and Austin.
