Scientologist Makes Masks for Emergency Workers

Scientologists always take an active role in times of disaster. That has not changed with the unseen enemy of the coronavirus or COVID-19.

Last week, a Nashville Scientologist, “safer at home” like the rest of the country, asked a question on her Instagram: “What did you do for your country today?”

She went on the explain: “Cloth masks go a long way in preventing the spread of COVID19 so I’ve turned my home into a tiny cloth mask factory so we can make as many as we can. You can buy one in my Etsy shop and for each one sold, we make one to donate.”

The following day she posted a picture featuring two of her donated masks…on the faces of emergency workers.

Two members of the Salvation Army wearing her donated masks.
 

“Seeing these donated masks out in the field makes my heart sooo incredibly happy,” she wrote. “Thank you to these workers at the Salvation Army for the amazing and brave work they do.”

Prevention is important. The Church of Scientology has created its How to Stay Well Prevention Resource Center to prevent the spread of illness and help people keep themselves and others well.

With the motto, “an ounce of prevention is worth a ton of cure,” the website includes information on how viruses and bacteria spread, how to properly wash your hands, the proper use of masks and gloves, social distancing tips, how to clean and sanitize your home, and what to do if you become sick or have symptoms.

The website is available in 17 languages and is offered as a public service by the Church of Scientology.

`The Scientology religion was founded by author and philosopher L. Ron Hubbard. The first Church of Scientology was formed in Los Angeles in 1954 and the religion has expanded to more than 11,000 Churches, Missions and affiliated groups, with millions of members in 167 countries.
