Calling All Crafters! With COVID19 spreading and a global shortage of medical masks, it's time to start putting your crafting skills to good use! Companies are struggling to keep up with the demand of personal protective equipment (PPE). Medical personnel, government officials, grocery workers, and more are still working through this crisis in spots where most of the rest of the population have been locked down tight with shelter-in-place orders and similar social distancing orders. 

Let's band together and give them a little help! You can download these four patterns here, or click the link above and download directly from their Instructable. All instructions are included along in their original Instructable link.

The CDC's Information on Cloth Masks

"Unlike NIOSH-approved N95s, facemasks are loose-fitting and provide only barrier protection against droplets, including large respiratory particles. No fit testing or seal check is necessary with facemasks. Most facemasks do not effectively filter small particles from the air and do not prevent leakage around the edge of the mask when the user inhales.The role of facemasks is for patient source control, to prevent contamination of the surrounding area when a person coughs or sneezes.  Patients with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 should wear a facemask until they are isolated in a hospital or at home. The patient does not need to wear a facemask while isolated."
