Based on the high death rate in Louisiana, those who can’t stay home, should wear masks each time they must leave their homes. Wear a cloth DIY (do it yourself) mask over your nose and mouth to prevent you touching your face and breathing in the COVID-19 virus. Protect your eyes by wearing glasses.
For your DIY cloth mask to be effective in preventing the COVID-19 virus, it must be made of natural fibers, such as cotton, that are at least 4 layers thick; for example quilters cotton or 4 layers of 600 thread count sheets. TIP: Hold your mask up to the light; if you see light, it needs to be thicker to protect you from breathing in germs.
