Sewing Masks Instructions

Recently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended that people voluntarily wear cloth face coverings in public, in places where the risk transmitting coronavirus from person to person is higher. Although they may not be able to block out every particle, they can help in some circumstances.

Remember that there’s no strong evidence that homemade masks and face coverings can keep you from acquiring the coronavirus, but it’s been indicated that there are potential benefits to wearing something on your face when you leave the house.

It’s important to remember that homemade and hand-sewn face masks should be used in combination with appropriate social distancing out in public, on walks, and in stores, and that thorough hand-washing is still the most advocated medical advice for healthy people to avoid acquiring the virus.
