THREE-RIVERS – The mask makers of the Mauricie region are activated to produce these bits of tissue which will be mandatory as early as Saturday in all enclosed public places in Quebec.
The war effort continues. Both the home and the factory, we are active.
The last few weeks have been a little more quiet in the manufacturers. This was before the announcement on Monday.
In one week, the application has resumed.
The company “Nothing is lost, all is created” ” in Saint-Sylvère has produced 45,000 masks since the beginning of the month of April.
“We started to hear about it Monday morning. The online shop is set to go up all of a sudden. Many visitors also come to buy this week”, stressed Évelyne Gélinas Nothing is lost, everything is created.
On a smaller scale, Isabelle Lévesque has sewn more than 300 masks in his kitchen at Trois-Rivières.
“My sewing machine was parked for at least six years before it broke out. I had started to make one for me. I put it on the social networks, and it snowballed from there. The people I asked, I asked”, she told.
The time of holidays has come to a hundred employees of Shirt Empire Louiseville. A well-deserved vacation, with an effort to continue to return.
The book order is complete for approximately two months, either to masks or gowns medical. The company has produced nearly 400 000 masks since the beginning of the pandemic.
“I am glad that we were able to push it and push it until the last minute, to have this inventory and serve the world. I think that within two-three weeks, when people go back, we will be at the end of our inventory, but we will be there to continue”, said the president Jonathan Sibony.
