In just 45 seconds, U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams demonstrates how to make your own cloth facemask.
It’s lo-tech. You can use a T-shirt, hand towel, or bandana. The only other thing you need is rubber bands.
The CDC now recommends wearing cloth face masks in public places where it’s difficult to social distance from others — meaning staying at least six feet away.
That’s because a “significant portion of people” — perhaps as much as one in four people — are infected but won’t ever show any coronavirus symptoms. So wearing a cloth mask is particularly important for the many folks who don’t know they’re coronavirus carriers, but could spread the well-adapted microbe in crowded settings.
