Veterans Memorial Hospital still encourages the continued use of face masks in the community especially now with numbers of cases again on the rise. Since the CDC does still recommend that face masks be worn, Veterans Memorial Hospital continues to require all staff, visitors and patients to wear masks at all times within the facility.
The hospital and area community offices are also in need of child size masks. Many adult masks are too large on children, so smaller masks made to fit a smaller child’s face are in need. Veterans Memorial Hospital as well as the Waukon Economic Development, Lansing City Clerk Office, Postville City Clerk Office and Monona Chamber of Commerce are all accepting these homemade masks.
Masks can be dropped off at the following locations:
- Waukon Chamber of Commerce/Economic Development Office (place in tote at front door between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. M-F)
- Lansing City Office (place in tote at front door between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. M-F)
- Postville City Office (Place in tote in front of police station door anytime)
- Monona Chamber of Commerce (place in drop off slot in front door anytime)
Please put any homemade masks in a bag and leave at one of these locations. Please also mark the bag if it is a child-size mask.
Masks may also be dropped at of the main entrance to Veterans Memorial Hospital. For more information, please call Erin Berns at Veterans Memorial Hospital at 563-568-3411 Ext. 443.
