Here’s a link to an incredibly useful video starring Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams. Dr. Adams demonstrates how simple it is to make a homemade face mask using a t-shirt and some rubber bands. Not one bit of sewing is required.
The CDC is now suggesting that Americans wear a face mask when they go outside. This isn’t to prevent you from catching COVID-19 so much as it is to prevent you from spreading it. New research suggests a lot of folks don’t have any symptoms of the virus.
Dr. Adams demonstrates how you can fold a t-shirt or any piece of cloth and attach it with rubber bands. I’d suggest using hair elastics if you have them. They’re cloth-covered, so a bit comfier on the ears.
