In the event that you need to go out and want to help protect yourself, a family member, or others in your community, here is a medical mask tutorial for creating your own medical safety masks.

You’ll want to use a very tightly woven cotton fabric, such as bed sheets or pillow cases. It’s best to use a blend that has been pre-shrunk. If you’re making these for home use, coffee filters will work as replaceable filters. Be sure to wash after each use.

Also, it helps to use a bracket to prevent the mask from literally resting on your face.
