The U.S. Air Force COVID-19 Task Force is urgently seeking to determine manufacturing capabilities to prevent further infections. The request specifically seeks suppliers of nonmedical graded, cloth masks.

The request states, “We are open to design improvements for durability that will allow the material to be laundered up to 75 times and maintain anti-microbial properties, economies of scale, and material optimization.
