  • Wear the face mask. It’s not effective as respirators, but it has at least SOME effect!

  • Every healthcare worker I know would wear a homemade mask as opposed to wearing nothing. They are wearing fucking trash bags in NY. Plus, homemade masks let healthcare workers know that people care for them.

  • Fabric masks are not as effective as an N95, but still reduce the spread and are better than no protection. You’re also conflating knitting and sewing (no one is KNITTING a fucking mask), and insinuating that all fabrics/textiles have the same properties and ability to filter droplets. This is an irresponsible post.

  • Then why are healthcare workers being told to “wear bandanas and scarves” ? Shame on you for trying to tear down the one god damned thing that’s been good lately. Sew away people! Nurses are using them over the disposable N95s so they last longer. Don’t listen to this horseshiit. Also, the CDC have been the ones saying masks don’t do anything this whole time…. I’m aight.
