First, a qualifier. Note that the doctor in the video starts off by warning you that his wife’s design has not been tested. His faith in the mask produced by his wife is “anecdotal” based on his sniff test and use of the mask. I think her design is brilliant and, if you are going to use a home-made mask, makes a lot of sense.

PUTTING ON A MASK AND TAKING IT OFF CORECTLY IS VERY IMPORTANT. HERE IS A VIDO EXPLAINING HOW TO DON AND TAKE OFF A MASK CORRECTLY. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z-5RYKLYvaw
WHILE WE ARE AT IT, LET’S DISCUSS CORRECT REMOVAL OF GLOVES. WHEN TAKING OFF YOUR GLOVES ALWAYS TREAT THEM AS IF THEY ARE COVERED IN POOP. WATCH THIS VIDEO PLEASE.
Improper use of mask and gloves puts you and your family at risk. Please remember to safely dispose of old masks and gloves in the appropriate garbage receptacle. Do not recycle potentially infectious materials.
One last point. I do not believe that simply making a mask out of cloth has any real protective properties. If I were to pass gas, you would smell it! Assuming I were fully clothed, that gas would pass through underwear and pants. If gas can pass through, virus probably can as well. The following video is for those who can’t sew. I would recommend using a HEPA bag as a middle layer in this type of mask, always remembering that none of these designs have been tested and proven helpful. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r51YroAFPds
Prior to using any mask, it may be worthwhile to pass smelly gas as your own sniff test. A healthy serving of corned beef and cabbage should help!
