Face masks are now a must-wear but are getting difficult to find.
In Cebu City, Philippines, where GO-VA is based, the mayor ordered today, April 1, 2020, that anyone who goes to a public place without wearing a protective mask will be fined the equivalent of AUD645 to 1,614.
Or face jail time of 1 to 6 months.
We’ve been asking teammates who are working on-site (about 20 percent of the entire team) to stay at least one desk apart at work or 1.5 meters when interacting. We keep hearing the same thing: surgical masks are out of stock in all the pharmacies.
We thought this might help.
Here’s a guide for making your own protective mask using a clean handkerchief and two hair ties, thanks to the site Japanese Creations.
– Handkerchief (A regular cotton handkerchief of 18″ x 18″ is used in this tutorial.)
– 2 hair ties
1. Place the handkerchief face down.
2. Fold the top to the center.
3. Fold the bottom to the center.
4. Flip over.
5. Fold the top to the center.
6. Fold the bottom to the center.
7. Flip over.
8. Thread the ends of the handkerchief through the hair ties.
9. Fold the sides of the handkerchief.
10. Flip over. You have a pleated face mask!
Wash the mask after each use & you’ll always have a clean mask.
If you’ve run out of hair ties, Japanese Creations recommend using tights (stockings) . A good alternative can be elastic bands taken from a pair of socks.
