We are accepting gifts of homemade masks at this time. We recommend following the pattern here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VgHrnS6n4iA
Our guidelines for homemade masks:
- Homemade masks are not considered PPE, since their capability to protect HCW is unknown.
- Homemade masks should ideally be used in combination with a face shield that covers the entire front (that extends to the chin or below) and sides of the face.
- If they are made from fabric, and are reusable, should be washed with soap, bleach and hot water. Dry in hot cycle until completely dry.
- Recommended fabrics are: heaver, non-stretch fabric as denim, duck cloth, canvas, twill.
- Recommended fabric for the inner lining and filter pocket can be: other cotton, cotton blend non-stretch fabric. It can be thinner and softer.
- Fabric must be laundered in HOT water prior to sewing to prevent future shrinkage.
- Polyester or other less breathable fabric will not work as well, due to moisture produced when breathing.
