How To Sew A Face Mask

"Learn how to sew a face mask with this easy to follow picture tutorial. Mix and match with your favorite fabrics to create a stylist yet functional protection piece. This won't totally protect you from the virus but may give you some level of assurance that you are covered from whatever may come your way. Takes about 20 minutes to make. You can definitely make a few of these for your family and friends this season."

Notes: In settings where facemasks are not available, healthcare professionals (HCP) might use homemade masks (e.g., bandana, scarf) for care of patients with COVID-19 as a last resort. However, homemade masks are not considered personal protective equipment (PPE), since their capability to protect HCP is unknown. Caution should be exercised when considering this option. Homemade masks should ideally be used in combination with a face shield that covers the entire front (that extends to the chin or below) and sides of the face.

I love this mask! I have to say though it isn't 1 size fits all. I recommend having 2 or 3 layers.

@woodemily7772011 0 784381 how do you know that this mask will not protect you from COVID-19 It certainly looked like it followed all guidelines and if you are simply saying you got COVID while wearing it the mask is not to blame. You are right in the fact that this mask won't protect you from the Corona-virus, no mask does they simply reduce your chances. It isn't up to you to decide if this mask protects you!
