The  Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that the general population wear a face mask outside to protect against COVID-19. Since masks are in low supply, why not make your own?

Step 4: Find two hair ties or rubber bands.

Step 5: Slip the bands over each end of the bandana about six inches apart.

 

Step 6: Fold the sides in over the bands and tuck them under the folds from Step 3.

 

Step 7: Put the mask onto your face and slip a band over each ear. Then move the fabric around to get a good fit.

Pro-tip: Make it fun. Find a bandana with fun colors or have a different design very day. 

This style of mask is effective because it provides adequate protection and is easy to clean. These are recommended by the CDC because it saves professionally made masks for doctors and essential workers.
