Cone Health is asking for donations of personal protective equipment for its medical workers.

Since late last week, the health care system has received thousands of N95 masks from individuals, businesses, and local colleges including UNC Greensboro.

But Michelle Schneider, Cone Health's vice president and chief philanthropy officer, told WFDD more donations are needed as they are still in the early stages of response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Schneider says they are accepting medical-grade masks, gowns, and other medical equipment including ventilators. They are not accepting homemade masks. 

The health care system is also considering implementing new decontamination methods to allow for mask recycling.
