Mask Shortages

Mask Shortage

During this national health emergency for COVID-19, we are facing a mask shortage affecting all of our healthcare providers around the country. In an effort to assist our colleagues in being able to provide the high level care that the country needs, we wanted to make a short plea with our patients today. If you or a friend or family member have more masks than you think you will need during this crisis, please consider donating your extra masks to any healthcare provider. We can always accept mask donations here at The Endocrine Center but if we find our doors closed or if another healthcare provider is closer to your home, feel free to donate to another clinic or hospital close to you.

As always, we ask for you to stay safe and healthy. For more specific information related to COVID-19, please direct your questions to The Houston Health Department at 832-393-4220 or on their website at www.houstonemergency.org/covid19.
