ROCKFORD, Mich. — Workers at what Wolverine Worldwide calls their ReChaco Factory in Rockford, Mich., are hard at work making masks for medical professionals.

Posts on Facebook explain that teams ring a bell every time they complete 10 masks, and they are maintaining sanitation protocols at work stations every two hours.

Teams’ spirits are buoyed with binge-watching sessions on Netflix.Wednesday’s choice was – naturally – Tiger King.

The local workers are also connected in their efforts with a team of Wolverine staff in Portland, Ore.

Chaco is one of Wolverine's lines of lifestyle footwear.
