Welcome to MassMakeMasks, a hub for information on sewing emergency supplies of masks needed by health professionals in light of the COVID-19 emergency. Though we’re centered in Western Massachusetts, we hope folks anywhere find useful information on this site.
The CDC now recommends that everyone wear nonsurgical, cloth face coverings when in public.
NOTE: These are not medical grade masks.
