Editor's Note: This mask is not a N95 mask. It is meant to be used for general protection from coughing and sneezing when out in public. This is not protection in place of social distancing. At this time, it is best to stay home when possible. For necessary trips out, like trips to the grocery store, the CDC recommends wearing a mask to provide whatever protection you can for yourself and others.
Last week I made a face mask more or less because I was at loose ends. This week, I saw a link for a local hospital with directions on sewing face masks for the hospital. I wanted to make some of these for my family and if I ever feel they are good enough for the hospital, I’ll send them over. Here is the link to the original directions that I used.
I think credit goes to Lucy A Fazely, she also has a Facebook.
Now, when I printed the directions, they included a step where non woven interfacing was included so my mask has that. They have since removed that item from the directions. Does anyone know why? It seems like it would provide an excellent barrier.
