It may be baby steps but we are getting closer to the time when we can open up again as the government discusses how the lock-down can be relaxed. We suspect a big part of the opening up process will include face-masks so we’ve been investigating.
There seem to be two schools of thought at the moment – full on plague doctor or just wrap any old scarf around your mouth and hope for the best! Clearly we need something that does the job but doesn’t make us look as though we are about to join the Venice Carnivale.
We have been working with our local councillor Marg Griffiths to come up with a solution and are putting together DIY mask packs to be sewn at home. Basic sewing skills are required and ideally a sewing machine for best results. The masks are for use at home and when out in a public place but are not for key workers in a hospital or care home environment.
We’ll put posts on all of our groups as soon as the packs are ready but in the meantime, if you are a keen tailor we can supply the pattern as a free pdf but ask that you make a contribution to Medecins Sans Frontieres .
