Hood College has partnered with several community organizations to help the effort against COVID-19.
Hood’s Department of Nursing has donated six bins of personal protective equipment (PPE) to Frederick Health in response to the equipment shortage. These bins included safety goggles, face masks, N95 masks, gowns and gloves. Hood is also donating pocket-sized hand sanitizers to Frederick Health from its marketing give-a-way items. In addition, the College is making space available for doctors and nurses to stay so they don’t have to go home and risk spreading infection to their families.

Also, Georgetown Hill Early School, which operates Hood’s Georgetown Hill Child Development Laboratory School, is operating a daycare for children of essential hospital personnel.
