“Wearing a mask in public can help save lives. If you do not have access to pre-made ones, this article will help you to be able to make your own at home.”

Covering our face is now recommended by the US Centers for Disease Control when going out in public, where maintaining the prescribed 6-foot social distancing rules may be difficult. In essence, this means just about everywhere we go in public. The idea is to help curb the spread of COVID-19 as most masks are primarily for the safety of others and not to prevent ourselves from being infected. Some people have access to pre-made masks, but many others do not. That’s where this article by Medea Giordano and Jeffrey Van Camp for WIRED can help. Here they provide step-by-step instructions to make your CDC-Approved cloth facemasks so you can help fight the spread.
