REDDING, Calif.- A Shasta County health care facility needs the public's help.
Shasta Community Health Center in Redding says it only has enough medical supplies to last them two weeks.
With the coronavirus outbreak, the health center says they depend on supplies to keep their centers clean and their patients and staff safe.
Shasta Community Health Center is a non-profit primary health care center that provides medical and dental services.
Supplies they currently need include: N95 respirators and surgical masks, goggles, disposable gowns, gloves, disinfectant spray and wipes, and hand sanitizer.
C.E.O. of Shasta Community Health Center, Dean Germano, says these items are necessary at such a critical time.
“Your healthcare workers, your people, your frontline people have to be there for the community so they can help patients in our community.," says Germano." So that’s why, that’s why we need to make sure we all have sufficient supplies to do our job and protect our employees, so they can do their job and protect our community."
Action News Now asked if the center is accepting hand-sewn masks and they say they will gladly take them, but will put them in reserve and will only use them if recommended by the CDC.
All donations can be dropped off at the main lobby of the Shasta Community Health Center located at 1035 Placer Street in Redding.
