Corona Virus Mask

December 25, 2020

The recent outbreak of the Corona Virus and the resulting world-wide hysteria has caused massive shortages of certain sanitary supplies. One item in particular has been wiped off the shelves of every drug store, market and even Walmart. What to do? Use your head and a little imagination.

Introducing the Corona Virus Coffee Filter Mask.

Items required:

One 8-12- cup coffee filter. These are readily available cheaply at any market.
Two small buttons
12″ of round elastic cord.

Fold the filter in half and make two small holes on each side just large enough for the cord to pass.

Pass the cord first through the folded filter and then through one button hole. Trim off extra cord. Repeat for the other side.

You now have an emergency mask that is probably no better but no worse than the ones you cannot buy at any price.


Remember, masks are effective to help an infected person from spreading any virus to others. However, they are less effective in preventing the acquisition of a virus. A coffee filter mask is probably no more or less effective than those “fashion” masks being peddled on the internet.
