On April 3, The CDC recommended that all of us wear some type of face masks to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. With the medical personnel having the top priority for the N95 and surgical masks, it’s time to get creative!
Maybe you sew; maybe you don’t. If you don’t, not to worry. The CDC link provided here shows how to make a mask with a tee shirt and rubber bands, and other methods, even using a bandanna and coffee filter!
If you do sew, below are links for directions on making either a surgical-type mask, or a cover for an N95 mask:
Here is information from Deaconess Hospital System about how to make a surgical-type one: https://courierpressblogs.com/pdf/howtomakeafacemask.pdf
Here is information on how to make a cover for an N95 mask: https://www.instructables.com/id/AB-Mask-for-a-Nurse-by-a-Nurse/
If you need help with either type of mask, please contact Julie Owen about the N95 mask, and myself about the surgical-type one.
Does this mean that social distancing and staying at home are still needed….absolutely!! Please, please, stay home….we’ll all stay healthier, and what a grand reunion it will be when we are together again. In the meantime, remember that you can watch services through the St. Luke’s Facebook page, or at the website.
This is a challenging time, for sure. If you have any concerns, need a listening ear, someone to support you, please call me or one of the clergy at 225-926-5343, or- for urgent matters- please call 225-773-2466.
