CDC on Homemade Cloth Face Coverings

CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, like, grocery stores and pharmacies.

Simple cloth face coverings can be made at home and may help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

There are hundreds of designs and instructions for making your own cloth face masks on the internet. The CDC has created a page with instructions for making cloth masks both by sewing and a no-sew version. These are some of the simplest designs that you will find and they do meet the CDC’s requirements for cloth masks.
