Texas A&M Corpus Christi is continuing to help with the fight against the Coronavirus.

Crews in the I-Create Lab in the Mary and Jeff Bell Library used laser cutting technology to make disposable face shields for health care workers.

The university gave the shields to Driscoll Children's Hospital.

The masks, although not FDA-approved, were crafted using every reasonable effort to follow FDA standards.

Each heath care worker given a kit will have one reusable visor and a 30-day supply of disposable shields.
