CDC Guidance on Homemade Face Masks
Homemade Face Masks are a Last Resort
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has explained that in times of crisis, homemade masks are acceptable as a last resort. On the CDC website, Strategies for Optimizing the Supply of Face Masks, they explain that while homemade masks are not a substitute for PPE, they can be used in settings where facemasks are not available.
Personal use of homemade cotton masks:
In settings where surgical face masks are not available, the public might use homemade cotton masks (e.g., bandana, scarf, DIY masks) for prevention of spreading the COVID-19 virus as a last resort. Homemade cotton masks are not considered PPE, since their capability to protect someone is unknown. Caution should be exercised when considering this option. Homemade cotton masks should ideally be used in combination with a face shield that covers the entire front (that extends to the chin or below) and sides of the face.
Homemade cotton face masks will generally not keep healthy people from contracting Covid19 but can be more effective in preventing infected people from spreading the virus through airborne droplets. Social distancing of at least 6 feet, hand washing and avoiding large gatherings of people are still the best methods to prevent virus spread and contraction.
DISCLAIMER: These masks are in no way a replacement for N95 type masks. These masks should not be used in any surgical setting or where significant exposure to liquid, bodily or other hazardous fluids may be expected OR in a clinical setting where the infection risk level through inhalation exposure is high. These masks are face coverings to help slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others.
Snugpups LLC makes no warranties, either express or implied, that these masks prevent infection or the transmission or viruses or diseases.
