Across the nation, health care workers on the front lines are experiencing a shortage of personal protection equipment.

It's no different here in Omaha. Methodist Hospital says it's also experiencing the shortage.

Now, one man is going above and beyond to make sure our health care workers are protected during the coronavirus outbreak.

On Wednesday, Tracy Weaver delivered hundreds of face shields and ear protectors he and his team at Recovery Room Interiors made.

“We have the skills, the tech and the knowledge to do something like this. So it was natural," he said.
