Covergalls protecting gold miners and communities with reusable cloth masks
The COVID-19 pandemic has claimed nearly 345,000 lives, with almost 100,000 people dying in the U.S. alone. In the face of these grim stats, one company that revolutionized the mining sector for women is now doing what it can to make sure people are safe as nations around the world start to ease lockdown restrictions.
Covergalls, a company that began making coveralls specifically for women, is employing Ontario-based seamstresses to make reusable cloth masks. Alicia Woods, founder of Covergalls, told Kitco News that its mask production has quickly ballooned as the mining sector is trying to keep its employees and communities safe from the deadly virus.
