On Tuesday, March 24, we signed a contract with the  Latvian National Health Service  to manufacture 10,000 face shields. The Latvian Medical Association (Latvijas Ārstu biedrība, LĀB) helps with the process coordination. We receive requests from many organizations, but it is strategically important to address the health crisis first by providing protective equipment to Latvian medical institutions. Face shields will soon be delivered to hospital admissions wards, Emergency Medical Services (Neatliekamās medicīniskās palīdzības dienests, NMPD), and about 1,700 shields have already been delivered to family physicians. 50 face shields have already arrived at Liepaja Regional Hospital. In the coming weeks we will be able to start fulfilling other orders!

All shields manufactured from March 25th are fitted with an easy to disinfect, skin-safe silicone sheet padding. Thanks to Tehnisko Materialu Sagāde company for this product! As a result, our product does not contain any fabric component and the entire shield can be effectively disinfected.
