The homemade masks show how we are facing limited resources for not only everyday people to protect themselves but for all the medical staff on the front lines to as well. This will help future researchers realizes the sense of urgency our nation and world were in for personal protective equipment to prevent the virus from spreading. People had to make homemade masks from scrap fabric because it was the only options due to such a shortage of equipment. It will help future researchers understand the lives of everyone who wanted to protect themselves and others from the virus. This item is important to preserve because it might represent what our future may look like going forward as a result of COVID-19, mask may be a part of our everyday attire. This specific item was made for my local fire department and their families by a local citizen, 75 masks were made in total so far.
