With the latest New Zealand lockdown, the new levels have sent New Zealanders into a mask-buying frenzy, with several local makers selling out.
Here's our Whitecliffe Fashion Tech step-by-step instructions on how to make your own mask.
Currently there is evidence of limited community transmission of COVID-19, and the Ministry of Health recommends that all households should be prepared by having a supply of masks for each household member.
- You can read more about this on the COVID19 Govt website.
Face masks can be either fabric reusable (washable), or a single use disposable face mask. These can be purchased online, from supermarkets or pharmacies or you can make your own fabric reusable (washable) face masks. WHO advice on when and how to use masks including how to make your own can be found on the WHO website
Face coverings such as a bandana or a scarf can also be used if you do not have a mask.
People need to assess their individual requirements for masks. The Ministry recommends approximately four fabric reusable (washable) face masks per family member.
