CDC shows you how to make your own face mask in 45 seconds

the centers for disease control and prevention (CDC) has recommended that citizens wear ‘non-medical, cloth masks‘ to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus. as part of a campaign to encourage people to wear them, the agency has created a 45 second video demonstrating how to make your own face mask.

in the video, US surgeon general dr. jerome adams demonstrates how to make your own cloth facemask using old items such as a t-shirt or an old scarf. he then uses two rubber bands to create ear loops.

‘CDC is additionally advising the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others,’ the CDC says in a statement on its website. ‘cloth face coverings fashioned from household items or made at home from common materials at low cost can be used as an additional, voluntary public health measure.’

‘the cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical masks or n95 respirators,’ adams added on friday. ‘those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders.’

  • This folding method regrettably leaves only one layer of filtering material across the center crack. The cloth should instead be repeatedly folded over itself so that the entire mask contains the same number of many layers. There should be no thinner cracks anywhere.
