The CDC is advising the use of nonmedical cloth face covering as a voluntary health measure.
It is voluntary. However, the CDC is not recommending the use of medical-grade or surgical grade masks as N95 respirators need to be saved for medical professionals.
So, we are sharing a very easy way to make your own mask with things you already have laying around your home.
Step 1: Grab a Handkerchief and Two Rubber Bands
Step 2: Fold the Handkerchief into Threes
Step 3: Fold the Handkerchief into Three Again
Step 4: Grab Two Rubber Bands
Step 5: Take One Rubber Band and Put It a Third of the Way Down on One Side
Step 6: Take the Other Rubber Band and Put It a Third of the Way Down on the Other Side
Step 7: Fold the Remaining Fabric Over the Rubber Ban
Step 8: Put the Fabric Over Your Face and the Rubber Bands Over Your Ears
And there you have it! A homemade mask to keep you safe during those quick trips to the grocery store.
