Proposed guide is meant to provide a simple outline of best practices to make, use and reuse face covers to enable NGOs and individuals to make face protection themselves.
The key criteria for proposed designs are Ease of Access to Materials, Ease of Making at Home, Ease of Use and Reuse.
The homemade face cover should be prepared in such a manner that it can cover the mouth and nose completely and can be tied over the face easily.
This face cover is not recommended for either health workers or those working with or in contact with COVID 19 patients or are patients themselves as these categories of people are required to wear specified protective gear.
Wearing of face covers is especially recommended for people living in densely populated areas across India.
