Here’s your task – make a mask!

New evidence by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) suggests if we all wear a face mask we can do our part to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.  Many people who have the virus don’t show any visible symptoms, and can easily spread the disease through tiny,  invisible, liquid droplets that come out of their nose and mouth when they cough, sneeze or breathe out.

That’s why a face mask or a face cloth, along with practicing social distancing, hand washing, and not from touching our face until we wash our hands, can be a useful way to help prevent the spread of this highly contagious virus.

Because medical workers need all the professionally made face masks they can get, the CDC has created easy face mask patterns we all can make at home.  From a face cloth that you make using your sewing machine, to a hand stitched one, they all achieve the same result: helping to stop this virus in its tracks.

Even though social isolation is recommended, there may be times when you must venture out of your home. That’s when you need to put on your newly made mask or face cloth. The life you save may be your own!
