COVID-19 – Masking the Issue, 2020


Earlier this week, our Producer, John Ironside, ventured out to KARIT.ca, a painting a renovations business in Barrie, where the owner, Karen R Macintosh has launched an initiative to produce reasonably-priced cotton face masks for those who want the added layer of personal protection when outside, or shopping, etc.

What caught our interest is that Karen also donates about 40% of her product to many frontline workers in this COVID-19 war who may not have the support of a hospital or other official body that can supply them with Personal Protective Equipment, or PPE.

We would like to thank the following sponsors of the City of Barrie Network. These businesses show they care about our shared community by helping us to provide a locally-focused truly local voice to you and your neighbours. They also enable our crew to be able to continue providing donated services to promote local benevolent community groups and charities based in The City of Barrie, the Town of Innisfil, and the Township of Oro-Medonte.
