How to Make Your Own Protective Mask

One thing that you'll notice in the Asian countries that are grappling with Corona or Covid-19 virus is that many people try to protect themselves by wearing masks.  Doctors and medical professionals in the United States initially told the public that we don't need masks and that they would be unlikely to fit us well if we had them. However, the thinking about mask is starting to change and now the CDC recommends a simple cloth mask.  A mask will provide a measure of protection for wearers and also keep an asymptomatic infected person from breathing on others.

Here is a link to the CDC recommendation on masks.

You can easily make a simple cloth or paper mask at home.  Here are two designs that I found on Youtube.  Again, I'm not a medical professional and you'll have to assess these designs on your own.




Finally, if the CDC has changed their mind about masks, can recommendations about goggles or glasses be far behind?  Stay safe.  Stay home.  Maintain strong social distancing.
