You can help local hospitals and health professionals amid the growing COVID-19 outbreak by sewing face masks. Atlantic Health System, which owns several hospitals including Newton Medical Center and Morristown Medical Center, has released instructions on how to create masks for those in health care spaces who are not taking care of patients with Coronavirus.

The homemade masks will give extra protection to those who are not directly at risk for COVID-19 exposure and allow the professional protective gear to be used exclusively for those who are at higher risk of exposure.

Check out the written instructions here and the video instructions for sewing masks below.
