Sew masks for hospitals

Volunteer sewers need to use a CDC-compliant pattern, approved by Allina, to create the masks. Tightly woven 100 percent cotton fabric should be used for the front of the mask while soft, high quality, tightly woven 100 percent cotton flannel should be used for the backing.
