One soft fleece strip holds the mask snuggly across your nose and cheeks and wraps around to the back of your head, and the other fleece strip can be tied to secure the bottom of the mask around the back of the neck.

Masks are generally used to protect yourself and others from respiratory droplets, and with a rising number of asymptomatic COVID-19 cases, Favini said there’s no harm in wearing one while you’re out and about as long as it is homemade and not a medical mask, which should be reserved for health care professionals.
In order for a homemade mask to be effective, Favini said it must cover the nose and mouth since this is where respiratory droplets enter and exit. As for fabric recommendations, the thicker the better.
“In general, the thicker and more tightly woven the material is, the more protective it likely will be. We also have some reason to think that vacuum filters may be more effective in filtering the particles and might be a good middle layer between an inner and outer layer of fabric,” he said.
