Now that the CDC recommends wearing cloth masks when going out, we’re all wondering where to get one for ourselves. Even a simple mask helps prevent getting or transmitting diseases, and now we have a list of local mask makers who - after donating many to local drives or hospitals - have the capacity to sell masks for home use.

Need a pro mask or want to volunteer to sew? See our overall mask and PPE guide for helping hospitals or first responders out.

They're made in solid colors or muted patterns, so as to not be distracting. They're based on a design created by a nurse for institutional use, so they're machine washable and durable.
