Coronavirus: Catholic secondary schools in Cobourg, Bowmanville, Ont. making face shields

Two Catholic secondary schools in central Ontario are helping to manufacture face shields for front-line workers in the coronavirus pandemic.

According to the Peterborough, Victoria, Northumberland, Clarington District School Board, a collaboration between St. Mary Catholic School in Cobourg and St. Stephen Catholic Secondary in Bowmanville aims to produce up to 500 face shields to distribute to area hospitals and long-term care homes for staff.

The board says both schools have “vibrant” manufacturing classrooms and are putting their laser cutting technology to use to produce the face shields. The first batch was completed this week and distributed to staff at Extendicare long-term care in Cobourg.
