Thank you, Pellissippi State Community College for your donation. We appreciate your partnership!This past week, Pellissippi State delivered its first 200 transparent plastic face shields for Covenant Health of East Tennessee. After finishing the production of 3D-printed headbands for the statewide effort spearheaded by Gov. Bill Lee, the MegaLab on the college's Strawberry Plains Campus began making entire face shields for local health care professionals at Covenant Health.

Pellissippi State will turn its attention to creating face shield kits for the college's Nursing students to use in labs this summer and fall, but will resume fulfilling Covenant Health's order of 2,000 face shields after that.
