ABOUT THE N95 MASK COVER FOR HEALTHCARE WORKERS:
A severe shortage of N95 respirator masks places members of the healthcare community at escalated risk of contracting COVID-19. Ideally, emergency manufacturing of these masks will fill this need ASAP. Until that happens, nurses and doctors must reuse their single N95 mask.
I designed this mask to be worn over top of an N95 mask. Do not use this pattern for any other purpose.
Choose from either the Elastic Version or Tie Version. I learned N95 masks come in two sizes: Small and Regular. Of course, all the beautiful faces out there come in many shapes and sizes! For that reason, sizes Small, Medium and Large are included in this pattern.
Let’s sew as many cotton N95 Mask Covers as we can to provide one more layer of protection for these vulnerable and incredibly brave men and women. Contact your local hospital for specific needs and mask delivery instructions.
DISCLAIMER: In no way does this mask cover guarantee disease prevention. Practice all CDC & WHO guidelines.
