    Hi Brenda,

    That is awesome to see HASCO helping with that effort! We have a vetted IM head band design (in press) that we have feedback from healthcare workers on. Please let me know if you want the design (if you haven't received it from Lynzie yet). We also have an improved shield shape that protects part of the head while getting it light weight!

    We would love to be involved as best we can as a small company, but we have so far run out of shield material to continue our efforts!

    Best,
    Erin
