I am not a health professional and am offering these masks as a lot of people have been asking for them.
Even when wearing mine to the supermarket yesterday I got stopped a couple of times and asked where it was from. Perhaps I just stood out in my bright floral mask.
Some government officials are currently recommending fabric and DIY masks be worn by the general public when out performing essential errands. These non-medical masks may aid in preventing asymptomatic carriers of the virus from transmitting it further than wearing no mask at all. Together we can all do our part to minimize the spread.
If you need to go out during the current coronavirus quarantine period these masks also help to reduce accidentally touching your own mouth or nose with dirty hands.
In order to make an informed decision on wearing a face mask go to the following sites –
- World Health Organization
- Your local government website will have information specific to your country
