The panic at the spread of the dangerous virus caused a spike in hand sanitizer, toilet paper, and unfortunately, extremely crucial face masks. With this horrifying scarcity looming over our healthcare providers, companies and communities alike are stepping up and coming together to do what they can to protect our frontline workers.
Arthrex, a massive Southwest Floridan company, mainly specializes in manufacturing orthopedic devices for surgeons, with the mantra “Helping Surgeons Treat Their Patients Better.” However, the outcry from our hospital heroes left Arthrex hoping to help. On April 14th, an FL news station reported “Arthrex has made 300 face shields and 25 protective hoods” and they’re en route to producing “up to 500 face shields a day.”
This whole process has been truly inspiring to see both the community at Arthrex and the community at large rallying together against the battle against COVID 19….It’s not just the first responders and the nurse. We’re all in this as one”

Washington Consular Services is immensely proud of Arthrex’ dedication in getting in front of the spread of the COVID-19 virus, and by being their Apostille and Legalization partner.
