It is possible to make your own surgical mask. I understand tht hospitals are running out and that those of us that are getting them are causing real problems for those that really need them.
I have attached a You Tube Video that will show us how to make them. Keep in mind that the mask does not protect us from flowing germs....but helps us in keeping our hands off of our face.
The best thing, as I understand, it to wash your hands a lot.
Be Safe and Stay Well.
