Use this Cura project if you have access to your own 3D printer and wish to help daycare, hospitals or other places people need to visit without getting infected by COVID19.

DISCLAIMER: the design is not by me but by Materialise. Because it's a matter of saving lives, I'm reposting a Cura project that will save time for printing it. See also tips and tricks below.

I also recommend looking into this alternative, which is foot-operated and probably is even safer:

My unsolicited advice: for places where people can work from home, don't install this but ask your employer if you and your colleagues can work from home.

Materials and methods

If you have 0.8mm print cores, these are especially suitable because you can print it with support 2,5 hours per piece with breakaway support material (see the .3mf file). The layer height can then be .3 mm.
Check the files and printing times.
