Making Face Masks for COVID-19

At JTV, we value people and realize our JTV family has a strong willingness to stay healthy and help others do the same. The CDC and many local governments are recommending wearing simple cloth face masks in public to slow the spread of the virus and help people who unknowingly may have the virus from transmitting it to others.

While these masks are not medical grade and not a substitute for N95 or surgical masks, they can signal to others that you’re following social-distancing guidelines. They can also send the message that you’re trying to protect yourself and them, as well as continue to serve as a reminder to not touch your face.

With the current shortage of medical-grade face masks, many people are choosing to make their own, but you don’t have to know how to sew to make a simple cloth mask.  We encourage you to follow our easy mask making tutorial and watch the Jewel School videos below to help walk you through the process.
