Here's some instructions from a Hometalker and she's included a link to what her local hospital recommends
These home sewn fabric versions are not surgical masks. They were recommended to be worn over the N95 masks.
Surgical masks are designed to block liquid droplets coming from the wearers mouth. But, as they do not fully enclose the nose and mouth with an airtight seal, and do not protect the eyes, they do not offer protection from airborne viruses coming in. Surgical masks are not designed to be used more than once.
Dust masks are designed to be used during times working with nuisance dusts such as construction or gardening. As dust masks are not a N95 rated respirator, they do not offer protection against hazardous airborne particles.
Opinions on the necessity of the general public wearing various face masks are polarized.
If you do choose to wear a mask, keep in mind that when it gets wet or soiled simply from breathing into it, it should be changed for a fresh one.
When removing the mask, remember to touch only the straps, and not the paper or fabric portions with your hands. Do not hang it up, or leave it laying anywhere after taking it off your face. Discard in a plastic bag, or launder fabric styles with hot water, immediately.

I dont think overkill is a word that would be used now, we can not be to careful

you can sew two pieces of material together and stitch elastic to both sides to loop over the ears...make sure you can not see through the material...if you can it's too thin. The quick way so many doctors are showing is a bandanna folder to cover your mouth and nose. Fold one end to the middle placing a rubber band around that end then fold the other end doing the same thing with the second rubber band. The solid side it the outside of the mask ...loop each rubber band over your ears and see what you have done in a matter of minutes. Good luck
