DIY Improvised Protection Materials
Coping with COVID-19
During this difficult time, we have seen several different materials used as improvised personal protection equipment. We thought some of our existing materials and products might be helpful for this purpose. Our vinyl table covers can transform into ponchos with a few simple cuts. Our bandanas can turn into partial face covers. And our costumes might add a bit of fun to essential trips outside your home. This DIY personal protection equipment (PPE) is not meant to replace the use of surgical or N95 masks in preventing the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). However, DIY masks and other protection measures can be used by lower risk populations to ensure healthcare providers and those at high-risk have access to the masks and protection they need.
