While the world is in an uproar and hoarding as much as they can for themselves, I’m being savvy and cooking only what we will eat for the day, staying inside, keeping our 1 meter distance between us and the next person, and creating my own necessities, including bleach wipes and most importantly face mask for my little one. When hospitals around the world started running out of PPE, I knew I had to do what was necessary to keep my family safe. We have stocked up on water and toiletries. When we go to the grocery store, we get what we need to get through the week, and now I don’t have to worry about being out exposed to anything without proper protection. It definitely doesn’t take place of the N95 mask, but something is better than nothing. I will post materials needed, steps, etc. in separate post. There are however, many tutorials out on making your own and you don’t have to be a world renowned seamstress to make them.
The best thing right now is for people to stay home. If you have to go and you don’t have a mask, use a scarf or anything that you have to cover your nose and mouth while out in public areas. If it’s not emergent stay home please! If you are sick, stay home! I live in Italy and this is day 13 of lockdown for us vs day 3 or 4 for the US. We only leave the house for grocery, work, or emergent medical appointments. If we are caught doing anything else besides that we could be fined and/or jailed! Italy is taking this very very seriously. Praying everyone is staying safe and please pray for this virus to soon pass!
