A local group of volunteers dedicated to sewing cloth masks and scrub caps is seeking public input about mask comfort and fit for future design purposes.

The Windsor Essex Sewing Force recently reached a milestone of having sewed 50,000 masks and caps over the past year.

“Understanding the experience of people in the community is critical as public mask mandates have been shown to be a vital public health tool,” said project lead Ken Drouillard. “We have an unique opportunity to improve the tools for the remainder of this pandemic and prepare for the future.”

Anyone who has worn a homemade mask who is interested in taking a brief survey can go to www.wesf.ca.
