Coronavirus DIY Facemask from CEO Ed Schipul

No worries if face masks are running out in stores, because there is always a solution to everything. Here is a DIY Facemask guidance from our CEO Ed Schipul. Because we care about you and your loved ones.

Rough cut comparison of the DIY coronavirus mask and the original.

From the article: https://www.eschipul.com/2020/03/coronavirus-diy-facemask-test/

“In Houston the Coronavirus (COVID-19) response has been quite aggressive. And as the third largest metro area in the US, it should be. I get it. Mostly we are quarantined in place except for grocery store runs and emergency needs. (And we can walk the dog, but that’s about it.)

This led to research on what we could do and turned up two interesting pieces of knowledge about the coronavirus. 

A) How long is the coronavirus contagious or viable by surface. As in how long can it be there and still infect you?”
