We recognize that necessity brings innovation, and there are many creative people who are designing and fabricating alternatives to commercially-available N95 masks, face shields, test swabs, and ventilators. While all of us desire to get solutions in the hands of our healthcare workers as quickly as possible, we want to do the best we can to ensure these alternatives are providing a known level of safety and reliability. We also want to assist in helping people to identify the most promising solutions with respect to both safety and potential production capacity.
