Canada’s Chef Public Health Officer recently announced homemade masks may help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

It’s important to note that wearing a mask is about preventing the wearer from potentially spreading the virus to others, not vice versa.

The Centre for Disease Control (CDC) has guidelines on how to make your own mask with sewing and non-sewing options. You can read the Guidelines, HERE. You can also watch the video from the CDC below, which shows how to easily make a mask out of a t-shirt.

Toronto’s Micheal Garron’s Hospital also has information on how to SEW MASKS, HERE.
