This ever-changing story continues to evolve.  Remember how early on we were told wearing a facemask wouldn’t help much in preventing us from getting COVID-19?  Now, many Canadian doctors are encouraging their use — as long as there are enough for our front-line health care heroes.  No kidding.  They absolutely must come first.  So how about an alternative to the professional-grade N-95 mask we keep hearing about?  Turns out even a makeshift homemade mask if done right can offer a level of protection:  even a fairly simple, no-sew one!  This tutorial from DIY blog Japanese Creations has almost a million views, and shows that with just a bandana and a couple of hair ties, you too can fashion a little bit of peace of mind.
