Businesses across Minnesota are changing the way they operate to help in the fight against COVID-19.

Twin Cities Flag Source in Anoka County usually makes and repairs American flags. This week, the company hopes to make 500 medical masks and will donate them to a local hospital.

"Right now it’s vital," Jason White, owner of Twin Cities Flag Source said. "We all need to band together to do what we can."

WSI Sportswear in Eagan is also trying to fill the need. The company has changed it’s production to sell medical masks across the country in the battle against the virus.
