Will You Wear a Mask All the Time Now, Please?

How To Make Washable Face Mask

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.

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.
