Day 64 May 22, 2020
From the Church Mouse...
Today we’ll discuss the use of masks in our current situation.
Who: all people should wear masks in public, especially those 51 years old and older, and those with current health difficulties.
When: Masks should be worn in all public situations, especially when social distancing cannot be maintained.
What: The best masks for our use should be made with pure cotton, 1000 threads per square inch. A filter pocket should exist from side to side on the inside of the mask. A filter should be made of chiffon or silk since both these fabrics are electrostatic. The mask should have no gaps between your face and the mask.
Why: The COVID-19 virus is smaller than a bacillus and cannot be seen except with an electron microscope. The 1,000 thread count fabric can block a good deal of the virus. The electrostatic fabric properties can catch the remaining virus and holds them fast.
How: To insure proper reuse of this sort of mask, do the following:
Good news and Bad news:
Next time: two recipes for hand-made sanitizer if that supply chain breaks down.
God of all resources, we give you thanks today for those who are busily sewing and making masks for our protection. We are thankful for their talents and gifts. Bless all the mask makers in the world. Blessed are the mask makers and wearers, for they shall be protected. Hear our prayers. Amen
