Donate Handmade Masks

Health care professionals are in desperate need of protective gear. Amid the shortage, there are many groups designing masks that can supplement personal protective equipment, also known as PPE. Although homemade cloth masks do not filter out COVID-19, and can’t offer health care workers as much protection as certified N95 masks, they can provide at least some physical protection and possibly extend the time that those masks can be used.

 

As of April 2, 2020, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti also recommended that people in public cover their mouths and noses with a non-medical face mask to reduce the spread of the virus. People have been using bandanas, some have been making masks.
