Face masks have recently been recommended by the CDC for use by everyone that is out in public. This is a change from their earlier stand that face masks would give a false sense of security and not be beneficial. Since face masks have been difficult to obtain ever since the start of the pandemic, what can you do? Fortunately, the CDC provided a way for everyone to make their own with simple instructions that are posted on their website. By following those, both those that can sew and those that can’t will be able to make their own mask. For those that can’t sow, all you need to do is use a scissor and cut out a mask from a piece of fabric.
When wearing a mask, make sure it covers both your mouth and nose and that you avoid touching it, so as to not contaminate yourself.
