Even though some companies are producing masks, there is a need for masks RIGHT NOW! Moms here at Moms for TN are making the most of this time of social distancing by bringing out the sewing machine and making masks to deliver to local hospitals and nursing homes. If enough moms and families get involved, WE can SOLVE the mask shortage issue.
The CDC has approved cloth masks for use and many hospitals can sterilize and reuse them. Some nurses simply take the masks home and wash them with their scrubs. This truly is a personal way to help those on the front lines in this Corona virus pandemic. Please follow the instructions below to make the CDC approved masks and deliver them to the hospital or nursing home of your choice. Please get friends, church members, and home school groups involved.
Below are two videos. One with instructions using elastic and one with instructions using ties. Thank you for willingness to serve your community.
God bless & Be Safe,
Moms for Tennessee
