EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) — An Evansville construction company is helping local healthcare workers stay protected.

Garmong Construction has postponed some of its projects due to the pandemic, but some carpenters are developing sneeze guards for local hospitals.

The plexiglass panels will be placed at registration areas and other patient interaction areas.
