These bandanas are perfect for creating a no-sew face covering that follows CDC recommendations.
As the world continues to navigate the best path to reducing the spread of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been regularly updating its recommendations. Previously, the CDC said it was not necessary for people to wear a face mask to cover their nose and mouth when out in public and now they recommend wearing one, in addition to practising social distancing.
In light of new evidence that shows asymptomatic carriers may still be able to spread coronavirus without knowing they have it, the “CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.”
While there is currently little to no evidence that cloth masks do much to protect the wearer against exposure to someone else’s germs, the “CDC is additionally advising the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others. Cloth face coverings fashioned from household items or made at home from common materials at low cost can be used as an additional, voluntary public health measure.”

Over here making masks 😷 I actually sent this to my mom in AZ because she can’t find masks anywhere. Never have I ever appreciated a bandana and scrunchies more! Hope everyone stays protected! 💛 #covid19 #diy #hairstylist #scrunchies #bandanna #prevention #everylittlebithelps Health care professionals suggest: Wash hands before touching and/or putting mask on. Once mask is on, do not touch, adjust or play with mask. Take off and wash hands immediately. Wash bandanna after use. 🙌🏻😷
