I show you how to make all three masks that are recommended on the CDC’s website, but mine are all no-sew versions, during the Coronavirus Outbreak. You may make these for your local healthcare workers. I am encouraging you to shop online, not to go into a store. We all have to do our part and part of that is staying at home and not exposing yourself or others. Thanks for watching. #millionmaskchallenge #fixthemask
