NEW! The CDC recommends every person wears a face mask in public
The CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.
The cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical masks or N-95 respirators. Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance.
Homemade masks will not prevent someone from becoming infected with Covid-19. They are approved by the CDC to be used as a last resort when all other PPE options have run out. Health providers experiencing shortages, who have handmade masks can use them on lower-risk patients allowing N95s to be reserved for emergency cases.
It’s important to use a tightly woven 100% cotton fabric. If you’re not sure what tightly woven means hold it up to the light, you should not be able to see through it. We also recommend sewing PELLON in between for added protection.
Please make sure that you prewash your fabric using a mild detergent and no fabric softener. This will help to shrink the fabric to prevent it from shrinking later on after it’s been sewn.
Below you will find diverse tutorials, please check them out and pick one that you feel comfortable following. Some of you may have more advance sewing skills than others, so feel free to share your tips!

Taking Care of your Mask
Wash your mask at least once a day in the WARMEST water with detergent. It should be washed typically when you are done with it. If you’re a frontline worker or spend your time in public where social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, consider washing your fabric mask every two hours, if possible.
Dry with hottest air.
Iron after washing.
