What can I (and every person) do right now to slow the spread and protect others?
Start wearing a facial protection, a barrier, a face mask.
No one of us knows what we may have and unknowingly spread.
A mask is a reminder: if you touch your face, your face mask becomes a barrier between your hands and your mouth and nose.
It possibly can save you and others by slowing down whats going out and whats coming in.
It IS personal!
Please do wear a personal mask with a filter when you care for others and when you go out to get groceries, postal services and to work!
And: yes, I make fabric masks right now.
In 3 different shapes/patterns and from 100% prewashed cotton and linen fabrics in about 40-60 colors.
Every mask is double layered, so that filters of all kinds can be inserted.
I’ve used activated charcoal, hepa, paper towel, brita filter pads, espresso machine charcoal filter pads, furnace filter sheets.
Anything which can slow exit out of your lungs and entry into your airways and lungs.
I can make 20-30 masks a day. If you know small care facilities, small doctor offices, veterinarians who may need some, let me know.
