Put local textile companies to work to fight COVID!

Reusable hospital/ISO gowns already exist - look into putting your small and large local textile businesses back to work by having them switch to manufacturing hospital gowns. They are reusable so put laundry companies back to work by supporting the gown washing.

Everything will need to be approved by your local health departments, especially the materials and proper cleaning methods, but this can help everyone. And if businesses want a guarantee of a certain amount of product to be created or length of time they will be in business, talk to your State OES - gowns are in high demand everywhere so even if your city/county don't need them as much, your state OES will likely buy them or other hard hit areas.
