COVID-19: You Can Create Your Own Face Coverings Using Household Clothes to Make ‘Facemasks’ - CDC
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), you can use a cloth face covering in public to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Your cloth face covering should:
Reach above the nose, below the chin, and completely cover the mouth and nostrils
Fit snugly against the sides of the face
Be made of multiple layers of fabric that you can still breathe through
Be able to be laundered and machine dried without damaging the material or shape
Do not buy surgical masks to use as a face covering. Those are intended for healthcare workers and first responders. Many items you may already have in your home can be used to create face coverings. Try creating a cloth face covering using bandanas, ski masks, washable napkins, or dish towels..
