Wearing a face mask in public isn’t required (yet) in Quebec, but I choose to wear one when I go to public places (like grocery stores) where social distancing isn’t always possible. Montreal has about a quarter of all Canadian cases, so we can’t be too careful. I know cloth face coverings aren’t as effective as N95 masks, but they’re better than nothing. In the event that I’m an asymptomatic carrier, my mask protects others from getting sick 👍
I recently made two no-sew face masks out of my son’s old (and too small) cotton race t-shirt to normalize mask wearing and perhaps slow the spread of the coronavirus.
I love this mask because …
- it’s easy to make (only takes 5 minutes!)
- fits snugly but comfortably on my face
- includes multiple layers of fabric
- can be used over and over again
- easily laundered and machine dried
- it’s upcycled and zero waste!
Have you made your own face mask? I’d love to see what solutions you’ve come up with! 😃 Please share in the comments below.
Hope you and yours are healthy and well! 💚
