Coloradans are turning to bras in the fight against COVID-19.
Here’s one Colorado Times Recorder reader wearing her mask, as well as a photo of how she made it.
A peruse of the Internet reveals videos and news stories about the repurposed underwear, destroyed in the name of public health. A Japanese bra company had the same notion.
But if you wear a mask, whether it be from bra or bandana or cloth, don’t contaminate yourself and others in the process.
Wash your hands before putting on the mask, advises a Westminster surgeon, Mitchell A. Fremling, in a letter to the New York Times.
Then wash your hands again after you put on your mask to stop yourself from infecting others in case you become contaminated after touching your own face.
If you need to touch your mask, you need to wash your hands again, both before and after you handle your mask.
