Atlanta Buckhead Midtown - CDC - Face Masks For Everyone - EZ PATTERN

Atlanta Buckhead Midtown -
CDC - Face Masks For Everyone -

In Atlanta Buckhead Midtown and the Westside, everyone wants to stay as safe as possible. 


Watch the US Surgeon General, Jerome M. Adams, M.D., M.P.H., demonstrate how to make yourself a mask -- no sewing required -- easily accomplished. Be safe and protect others.


These are NOT MEDICAL GRADE masks -- let's protect ourselves and leave the medical grade masks for the professionals to use. They need them most! 




Other sources for DIY mask patterns include:


Using a bandana and hair elastics

Full pattern for face mask - hand sewing

Olsen Mask Pattern (with HEPA filter)

Sarah Maker* offers written and YouTube instructions 


Instructions in Spanish: Nasobuco  Hacerlo     Lavarlo 




*NOTE: Sarah Maker stated that "Researchers at Cambridge University tested the effectiveness of a wide range of household materials for use in homemade masks. They measured how well the household materials could capture and filter small particles. Test data shows that the best choices for DIY fabric masks are cotton t-shirts, pillowcases, or other cotton materials. Using a double layer of material for your DIY mask adds a small increase in filtration effectiveness. 
Other research has found that most effective masks were constructed of two layers of heavyweight “quilters cotton” with a thread count of at least 180, and had a thicker and tighter weave." 


We are still working at Atlanta Homes ODAT Realty.
Call us at 404-939-2727 for a LIVE video tour of any home.

We always offered private live video tours so our experience makes it easier for us to show homes now. We want to protect our Buyer Clients during the Search process while all of us reduce contacts to confront the spread of COVID-19. 
How does it work? You stay at home, direct the tour room to room as I walk around. After the virtual tour, when you are ready, give me a call to visit the home. We supply gloves for you when you walk around by yourself.   All the best, Lynn - 404-939-2727

Hey Lynn:

Glad you share this! I did on my Facebook page. Given than you can't find facemasks anywhere the only choice is to make them.

Be safe and be well!

Good morning, Lynn B. Friedman thanks for sharing.... I have a bandana I would use.... but I have no desire to leave my property..... I order everything to be delivered, and if I run out of something, I'll do without..... I'm very stocked up....

Hello Lynn - I went to a specialty grocery store yesterday where there was an attendant who was monitoring the flow of customers entering the store which has become somewhat common in our area over the last few weeks but was now also taking the temperatures of people with a digital thermometer.  Yes, the times are quite different.

Good morning Lynn. Time has a way of allowing creativity. The wife made masks yesterday. The challenge is to use them as little as possible. Enjoy your day!
