Why Waste Time on A Homemade Mask That Provides Little Protection
With the growing need for face coverings during the COVID-19 outbreak. Many are left resorting to homemade face coverings out of fabric they manage to scrounge up. Leaving many wondering how best to protect themselves and those around them from spreading this terrible virus.
Surgical masks Are Intended for Surgeons. Leave the Medical Equipment for Those on The Front Line
The thinner surgical masks you see so many wearing (Especially in China) are intended for surgeons, because these products do a good job of keeping pathogens from the doctor’s nose and mouth from entering the surgical area they are working on.
In some Asian countries, such as Japan and China, it’s not uncommon to see people wearing surgical masks in public to protect against pathogens and pollution. But those masks don’t help much in the context of a virus entering into your mouth or nose. They’re not designed to keep out viral particles, and they’re not nearly as tightly fitted around your nose and cheek as an N95 style respirator.
Why Homemade Facemask Are Lest Effective Against Viruses
Numerous reasons have been given:
- They don’t offer significant protection from germs
- That the most effective models need special fitting in order to work
- That regular people don’t typically wear them correctly
- That they’ll give people a false sense of security and cause them to be lax about handwashing and social distancing.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a face covering?
A face covering is any well-secured cover that covers your mouth and nose.
Who should wear a face covering?
Everyone should wear a face covering when they need to be outside their home and may be closer than 6 feet from others. People who are sick should wear a face covering while at home if they cannot maintain at least 6 feet of distance from others. People who are sick and who need to leave home, such as to get urgent medical care, should always wear a face covering.
Do I need to wear a face covering all the time when outside my house?
If you are sick, yes. Remember you must stay home if you are sick and only leave for essential medical care or to get basic necessities such as groceries. If you are not sick, you should wear a face covering whenever you need to leave home and might be closer than 6 feet from others. Examples include riding the subway or bus, riding in a taxi or car service, walking on a busy street, going to pharmacies and grocery stores, and going to the doctor or a hospital. Essential workers should also wear a face covering at work when they cannot maintain at least 6 feet of distance between themselves and others.
Can I wash this face covering?
You don’t want to soak and wash this facemask in a washing machine. The filter on the inside will break down and become less effective. Instead, you can spray this with disinfectant and lightly wipe down the face covering. Let it fully air dry before using again. People should have a couple of face coverings, so they can rotate for washing.
For how long can I use one of these face covering?
Depending how often you leave your home and how long you wear it each time will determine how long one will last for you. Rule of thumb, if you feel you were exposed to someone who has COVID-19, you should discard your covering and use a new one.
Are there precautions I should take with this face covering?
- In taking on and off a face covering, you will likely touch your face. As such, please wash your hands for 20 seconds with soap and water or, if not available, use an alcohol based hand sanitizer every time you take on and off your face covering.
- Do not put a used face covering in places where others can touch them or where germs trapped in your face covering can touch other surfaces, such as counter tops or your kitchen table.
- Used paper masks should be thrown out at the end of the day.
- Do not throw your face covering loose in a bag or backpack. We recommend keeping a plastic back with you to store your face covering if you will be taking if off when outside the house.
