There are people everywhere trying to do everything they can to fight Covid-19 and the Tesla community is no exception. We wanted to highlight a few Tesla community members (who we happen to know personally or well) who are making exceptional contributions to help support COVID-19 patients and hospitals taking care of them 👏

Beagle Drones has started making masks to donate

Brian Lovett has been working with ER physicians in modifying the designs of 3d masks to fit better and allow better breathability.

He started a group for people who are making masks and those who are in need of masks: https://app.slack.com/client/T011CSM3ZT7/C011CSM428M
He has a patreon page if you want to help support his efforts.

Tesla owner Ross Pirtle aka @rmpirtle, has been 3d printing some of the Montana Masks and donating them.

With the shortage of elastic bands, we resorted to using the very expensive non-latex theraband exercise band to cut in strips and make straps from it.

Best Coast Burritos (Alvin Shen from Tesla Owners East Bay) is gearing up in an effort to feed emergency staffs in the East Bay. GoFundMe page
