Local helps build mask disinfectant station

Somewhere in the confines of St. Joseph Regional Medical Center stands a one-of-a-kind mobile sanitation cabinet powered by Ultraviolet C that can clean 24 healthcare masks every 10 minutes. This cabinet was delivered on April 9 after two weeks of designing, building and validating the prototype by a team of professors and graduates at the University of Idaho, including Sandpoint native and biological engineering research support scientist Chad Dunkel.
