From pedicures to PPE: A+ Nails is creating masks, shields for the community

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - A+ Nails and Body Massage in Ogden is creating face masks and shields for the community.

“Everyone is concerned about wearing the mask and wearing the face shield and we wanted something safe for the community and safe for us too,” said Lisa Nguyen, the owner of the salon. “We wanted to make something to give out to the community... for masks to be served everywhere.”

As of Wednesday, the staff has made over 9,000 face masks and 3,000 face shields. They’ll continue to make as many as they can.

Each pack includes three washable face masks and you can get one shield for yourself.

Anyone can walk in and get masks and shields. You can also grab some for your family and friends who can’t get to the locations.

Pick up times are from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
