One Vermont state trooper found a creative way to create more face shields for medical staff amid the coronavirus pandemic. Using his 3D printer, Robert Zink, a Vermont State Police detective, created 60 face shields for staff members at Bennington Health and Rehab center, according to FOX News.

Zink did so when he found out the center had a shortage and staff members who could not find the proper equipment for themselves. Zink used plastic sheets donated by Staples and turned them into face shields.
