How to Make a No-sew Mask

  • Always wash your hands before and after wearing a mask.

  • Use the ties or loops to put your mask on and pull it off.

  • Don’t touch the front of the mask when you take it off.

  • For apartment dwellers, put the mask on and remove it while inside your home. Elevators and stairwells can be high-contamination areas.

  • Wash and dry your cloth mask daily and keep it in a clean, dry place.

  • Don’t have a false sense of security.
