Some of the posts dealing with the virus are being moved into the giant Covid 19 thread. Check there to see if it has been dumped there.

From what I have read from several places. We can't get the right fabric to make the masks.

I don't report anything.

I didn't even know we could report posts. lol For something as serious as the safety of all of us, I would think posting how to make masks for personal use would be okay.

It is true that we can’t make N95 level masks but since they are now desperate and reusing disposable masks they are asking for masks that do work at 50% out of double cotton.

Deacon.com is a hospital that is demonstrating how to make with pleats. They are better than reusing old masks and until distrubution meets the demand many medical centers are requesting.

because we have rules about who can ask for donations and who cannot.
or
because those reporting don't "see" the fine line between asking for donations directly to the poster and those asking/suggesting that members make donations to some worthy cause that does not directly benefit the poster.
or
because we already have a bazillion posts about the same thing.
or
...
the bottom line is that reporters mean well. they are trying to help us keep up with things that shouldn't be posted and that we might miss.
i appreciate the reports - even if the reporter is slightly off the mark.
