Your Mask Makes a Difference



Thanks to everyone who created and donated a mask during the coronavirus outbreak. We have received approximately 30,000 masks to share with Palomar Health staff and members of the community. We are humbled by your generosity!

The masks you make have been provided to employees who work in non-patient areas. Although these masks are not the equivalent of an N95 mask, they are extremely helpful in limiting exposure for employees who interact with members of the public. We can flatten the curve of COVID-19 by wearing any type of mask that provides a barrier against airborne particles. 

By directing these supplies to non-clinical areas, we are conserving medical-grade masks for medical personnel. 
 
Donated masks and supplies will continue to be accepted. These gifts will be shared with patients, volunteers and community non-profit partners. Masks may be dropped off or mailed to: 

Palomar Health Warehouse
Attn: Mask Donation
2227 Enterprise Street, Escondido, CA 92029

Dropoffs are accepted at the above address Monday through Friday, 9 am - 4 pm.

Please contact Alex Arana at (760) 739-2961 / Alex.Arana@palomarhealth.org with any questions about this project.
