MyPillow, a specialty pillow manufacturer announced on Tuesday that they will be making facemasks for hospitals nationwide.

Healthcare professionals are in need of N95 respirator masks, which has a more snug fit than regular surgical masks. MyPillow has not confirmed what kind of mask they will make.
Other companies like Honeywell, 3M, and Apple are all set to either help manufacture or donate masks throughout the United States and Europe.
Our teams at Apple have been working to help source supplies for healthcare providers fighting COVID-19. We’re donating millions of masks for health professionals in the US and Europe. To every one of the heroes on the front lines, we thank you.
