    Since their daughters left the family home in Santeuil, Nathalie and her husband have several rooms that have been made available to make over-blouses and store them before they are collected for distribution to the health workers. Like them throughout the Val d'Oise, hundreds of volunteers decided to get involved during this health crisis.

    The habits of the medical staff at the hospital du Parc in Taverny in the Val d'Oise had to adapt to the opening of the post-Covid-19 unit for patients discharged from the intensive care units. New protective equipment that was not previously used quickly became necessary, such as protective visors. These visors are manufactured and distributed by private individuals.

    While the Covid-19 crisis was taking hold, the nurses of the René-Dubos hospital centre in Pontoise resorted to donations from volunteers to be able to work in good conditions. The "Scrubs for the Hospital" collective, which was set up from the start, had the mission of compensating for possible delays in supplies and mobilized hundreds of people around its project.

    Thanks to the impetus of "Scrubs for the Hospital", the Access It factory in Saint-Ouen l'Aumône began to produce more than 8,000 over-scrubs a day for free distribution.

    Benoit is 40 years old and has been an employee of the Access It plant since January 2020. As soon as he heard about his boss's initiative, he volunteered to oversee the manufacture of over-scrubs. Every morning he walks 10km to his workplace and hopes that his action will help bring things back to normal. The fabric is bought in France or comes from Europe. The short circuit is put forward.

    Clément de Souza is the owner of the factory and one of the coordinators of the "Scrubs for the Hospital" collective. With entrepreneurial friends in the Val d'Oise region, he has set up a network for the manufacture and distribution of over-scrubs. From the very beginning of the crisis he was revolted by the fact that the nursing staff was so dependent on companies producing disposable material on the other side of the world.
