The New Castle County Division of Police is looking to purchase approximately 400 reusable cloth masks to outfit its first responders.
The division is seeking masks, preferably black in color but any solid color is OK.
Police said responses can be made through the direct message feature on their Facebook Page.
The post quickly generated more than 300 shares.
An advisory from the Food and Drug Administration now calls for the use of the masks.
Earlier, the President of the Claymont Fire Company reported that County Police officers were among the nearly dozen and a half people quarantined when aiding emergency personnel who transferred individuals to an ambulance.
The families did not inform first responders that the patient had coronavirus.
