Fab Lab to donate medical equipment to Singing River Health System

The Fab Lab in Jackson County is continuing to help in the fight against COVID-19 by making critical PPE supplies for healthcare workers.

PPE such as face shields has been manufactured by the lab and donated to medical clinics and home health companies across the Gulf Coast.

On Monday, the lab will send out the next batch of 100 face shields to the Singing River Health System where they will be used at the system’s many clinics and hospitals.

Chevron is partnering with the Mississippi Power Foundation and Chemours to provide supplies for the masks and shields.

The Fab Lab is also working with the Gulf Coast Veterans Health Care System to set up their own mini-lab to produce shields and has shared the design with Keesler Air Force Base.
