We are calling on everyone to make and wear masks to stop the
spread of COVID-19! If we all promise to wear our masks, then together,
we can keep each other safe.


Step 1: Commit to Wearing A DIY Mask

The virus spreads because people don't know they're infected. Wearing a mask shows you care about the lives of everyone around you.

We’re much safer when EVERYONE wears a mask. Infected people leave contamination behind. That’s why, even if you wear a mask, you’re safer if others wear one too. Insist that everyone wear a DIY mask.

Wearing a DIY mask is one of the most effective ways to save lives and there's no time to waste. You already have what you need. 

TOGETHER, we can stop the spread of deadly infections.

Step 2: Make A Mask

Save the surgical masks for nurses and doctors! Just grab a cotton bandana, T-shirt, or dishtowel around your home and make a DIY mask.

Get creative! Rep your favorite sports team, a band you love, or your school. Just make sure it fully covers your nose and your mouth.

How can a mask help with COVID-19?

Masks prevent the spread of COVID-19

COVID-19 spreads when drops in the breath of infected people linger in the air or stick on surfaces.

When others come into contact with these drops, they too, can become infected.

Masks catch 95%–100% of the virus of the wearer.

I feel fine—why should I wear a mask?

It is estimated that over 50% of infected people don’t have any symptoms—
so you could have COVID-19, be spreading it around, and not know it!

Other countries have proven that more people wearing masks makes a huge difference.
