Since last week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are recommending -- both for those who are health as well as those who are ill -- the use of basic cloth face masks when they go out to public places, and washing those masks after every use.

The CDC have published these instructions, which explain:

  1. how to properly use cloth face masks
  2. how to make a cloth face mask using a sewing machine
  3. two ways to make a face covering without sewing -- cutting a t-shirt or folding a bandanna with rubber bands

Also, the New York Times published another set of instructions for sewing cloth face masks, either with a sewing machine or with needle and thread.
