During the Avian Flu scare leading up to the 2009 H1N1 pandemic – I did a lot of speaking and writing on pandemic planning and our firm wrote hundreds and hundreds of pandemic plans.
Looking into our website today, I found a resource that you might find helpful. Back then, there was a face mask shortage too – nothing like the one today – and the CDC published an article in Emerging Infectious Diseases (Vol. 12, No. 6, June 2006) on making your own mask.
We put it on our website and I ran into it today looking for something else. Want to make your own mask if you don’t have any? The blueprints are available right here!
