If you’re like me, you’re wondering why it took so long for the CDC or any other government agency to suggest wearing some form of a mask to provide at least a basic level of protection if you have go out in the public. Although we understand the special N95 mask is confirmed to protect against COVID-19, if the virus is airborne, whatever layer of defense you had available to cover your nose and mouth would at least provide some help. Wellllll, on Friday, April 3rd the CDC updated their recommendations on the use of cloth face coverings. I have been wearing regular surgical masks for a few weeks now if I had to go in public places with “a lot” of people.
You might be thinking… “Oh no, I don’t have a mask!” Don’t worry… you have a bunch of masks in your house right now. You just have to repurpose some items to make them. You have bandanas, scarfs, fabric, old clothes… you have mask! Watch the videos below and read article that will give you step by step instructions on how to make a cloth mask. We’re going to be alright. Pray. Take precautions. Trust God!

Necessity is the mother of invention 👍🏿😷❤ ・・・ 𝐃𝐈𝐘 𝐌𝐀𝐒𝐊 😷 Only use as a last resort when no other masks are available. It’s not an N95 but I guess it’s better than nothing. 😬 Bandana (or handkerchief or piece of cloth) + hair ties. That’s all you need. So easy! Whoever invented this … Thank you! 👍🏼 ADDITIONAL INFO: you can insert a “non-woven cloth” in the middle of the mask like wet tissues that are dried to act as a filter. Someone also suggested coffee filters, gauze, air condition filter, or vacuum bag with HEPA filter. Stay safe 🙏🏼 #masks4all . . . . . . . . . . . #diy #mask #covid_19 #coronavirus #folding #momtips #momtipsandtricks #hack #organized #stayorganized #quarantine #quarantinelife #masks4all #LAprotects #repost @julie_eigenmann
