McKenzie (9) and Collier (10) Burnett are siblings from Klamath Falls who have made almost 5,000 masks for people during the COVID-19 outbreak. The Burnett family owns an upholstery store that was closed due to the quarantine lockdown, and they resolved to put the time to use. The family worked together to make as many masks as possible and became backlogged. They’ve begun taking orders and are booked into July. The siblings originally wanted to make them for their family and friends, but quickly began distributing to the entire community as well as front-line healthcare workers. The pair attend a school that was already fully online before the pandemic (Cascade Virtual Academy), so, they were able to continue attending school from home while making the masks.

University officials said resumption of in-person teaching in September will be guided by Governor Brown’s staging plan for the state to reopen higher education institutions across Oregon; as well as guidance received from state health, education and other officials.
