Joy asks, "Where can we purchase face masks in Decorah (for those of us not handy with a sewing machine)?"
The Answer Person says: "At least three local retailers are currently selling face masks.
Agora Arts is selling a multi purpose wrap called "The Band Wrap" that can be used as a headband or a mask. The wraps are $15 and Agora Arts has committed to donating $1 of every purchase to local hospital and nursing homes for every band sold. To purchase a wrap, visit https://www.agoraarts.com/shop-1/i2h1f13qrqloo15m0o2vu2vdykxiq9
The Winneshiek Seamsters Union, a loosely-organized group, sew face masks and make them available for free at the community face mask bin located at 503 Pine Crest Drive in Decorah. The bin is open daily from 8:00 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. and stocked throughout the day by the Leuenburger family, who also collects the cash donations throughout the day. Over 1,260 masks have been distributed from this bin to the community.
