WATCH: How to make a simple mask in less than a minute

Local News

Nashville, Tenn. (WKRN)- We are all working hard right now to stay at home, in hopes that we can flatten the COVID-19 curve soon, but when it’s needed, many of us still need to get out to the grocery stores or pharmacies.

While not required by state officials, masks are now being recommended when going outside of our homes. These non-medical grade masks will NOT prevent you from getting COVID-19, but if you are practicing social distancing and washing your hands, it can hurt to wear a mask.

There are plenty of companies making different types of masks, selling them online but if you need a simple, cost-effective way to make your own, you’re in luck. News 2’s Kayla Anderson shows you how to make one with limited supplies, in less than one minute.

You will need just two items to make this mask; a bandana and two hair rubber bands (Nylon fabric recommended). These items can be found on Amazon, The Dollar Store or any local grocery store.
