When it comes to making your own face masks for COVID-19, not all materials and methods are created equal. It’s important to pay attention to CDC guidelines to make sure your face covering is as effective as possible.

While ideally everyone should be following stay-at-home orders, the CDC has specific guidelines for staying safe when in public during the COVID-19 pandemic.
