Wear a homemade mask to stop the spread of Coronavirus

The scientific evidence is overwhelming that we can reduce virus transmission if we all wear masks in public. Please protect yourself and others by wearing a mask and demanding that others do the same!

Why You Should Wear A Mask In Public

The scientific evidence is overwhelming that homemade masks limit virus spread

There are “34 scientific papers indicating basic masks can be effective in reducing virus transmission in public — and not a single paper that shows clear evidence that they cannot. Hospitals running short of N95-rated masks are turning to homemade cloth masks themselves.”

Most countries who have Coronavirus under control have widespread mask usage

“Hong Kong, Mongolia, South Korea and Taiwan, have covid-19 largely under control. They are all near the original epicenter of the pandemic in mainland China, and they have economic ties to China. Yet none has resorted to a lockdown.”

~50% of people with Coronavirus are asymptomatic

“Many authorities still advise only people with symptoms to wear masks. But this doesn’t help with a disease like covid-19, since a person who does not yet show symptoms can still be contagious. If we all wear masks, people unknowingly infected with the coronavirus would be less likely to spread it.”

How To Make Your Own Mask

Here are three ways to make a homemade mask in just a few minutes.

Use A T-Shirt and Scissors

No sewing is necessary for this mask. You only need scissors and a t-shirt.

Sew A Professional Looking Mask

This is a more advanced mask and requires fabric, sewing, and elastic.

A Paper Towel + Rubber Bands

This is an easy and disposable mask that you can make in only a couple minutes.

Advocates of #Masks4All

“Many people have asymptomatic or presymptomatic infections. If they are wearing face masks, it can prevent droplets that carry the virus from escaping and infecting others.”

George Gao

Director General of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention
“Wearing a simple cloth mask, decreases the spread of the virus by 80%! Czech Republic has made it OBLIGATORY for its citizens to wear a mask in the public.”

Andrej Babis

Czech Republic Prime Minister
“Research shows that fluids spread when coughing/sneezing are a big transmitter of COVID-19. Each of us needs to do what we can to stop the spread. One easy thing we all can do, today, is wear homemade masks in public. My mask could help you, your mask could help me. #Masks4All
