DYI MaskOn the right is one of the many videos showing a person making a DIY (Do It Yourself) Mask - there is no CDC or official guidance on the best way to make one.  DYI masks are intended to decrease viral spread from the wearer, if they are an unknown asymptomatic carrier.  They are not intended to prevent the wearer from becoming infected.  Thus, always maintain social distancing.     Kentucky Guidance on DIY Masks
