Bauer is now making visors for medical staff in Canada instead of hockey players

Bauer Hockey will now shift production to make visors for doctors, nurses and first responders in Canada amidst the COVID-19 outbreak.

The Canadian hockey gear manufacturer will make the medical visors at the company’s innovation centre in Blainville, Quebec. They'll be made of plastic and contain anti-fogging material.

"Right now, we're all on the same team," the company wrote.

The news comes just hours after Parliament passed the $107 billion economic aid package, which gives Canada the power to temporarily suspend patents — including patents on designs for medical supplies.

Canadian auto parts companies will also shift production to create medical supplies in the coming weeks.
