WIESBADEN, Germany - Laura Irick, a military spouse at U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden, has been giving away free handmade face masks to help in the fight to flatten the curve of COVID-19.Irick started making masks for the community in March when she watched a video tutorial on how to make a mask and then read an article that stated that wearing cotton masks could reduce coronavirus transmission by up to 75%, she said. “We wanted to ensure that the masks were washable and able to fit a wide range of people including young children.”Irick said the masks are 100% cotton and are made in sizes large (approximately 8 1/4” x 5”), medium (approximately 6 1/4” x 4 1/4”), and small (approximately 3 1/4” x 5 1/4").“I truly enjoy making these masks, and the feedback I get from the community has been heartwarming,” Irick said. “I recently gave a mask to a Soldier who was deploying and needed a mask because the one he ordered wouldn’t be here in time.”Helping the community is what keeps Irick going.“Everytime I give away a mask I hope that it helps that person and their family,” Irick said. “We are faced with very trying times, and it's important that we as a community come together and help combat coronavirus.”Irick can be spotted on her routine delivery runs with a red wagon that reads “MASK4ü” on Clay Kaserne.
