A Boating Business Helps Keep Bluebonnet Staff and Clients Safe During COVID-19
Several MTC correctional and detention facilities have pitched in over the last several weeks to keep people safe during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Staff members, inmates, and detainees have made hundreds of masks for themselves and the community.
In this case, a business in Abilene, Texas has turned the table to serve our courageous employees and those in our care at the Bluebonnet Detention Center in Anson, Texas.
At the beginning of April, Tige Boats Inc. began producing personal protective equipment out of its world-class boat manufacturing facility in the fight against COVID-19. The company recently donated several face shields to the medical unit at the MTC-operated Bluebonnet Detention Center.
“We are so grateful for these face shields,” says MTC’s Health Services Administrator Vanessa Enriquez. “They couldn’t have come at a better time.”
Like all correctional and detention facilities, Bluebonnet has been working hard to minimize the risk and spread of the coronavirus. These new face shields will help medical staff in their efforts to keep themselves and those they treat, safe.
