Mask Production

Step-By-Step Mask Production Guide

We are overwhelmed with the outpouring support we have received regarding making homemade face masks. Individuals and organizations across the country and the world have reached out to us to not only help sew masks, but to inquire about the pattern so they can duplicate in their community. Here is a PRINTABLE version of our mask instructions, pattern and some pictures of the process. We hope this will help healthcare professionals everywhere stay safe and healthy so they can keep caring for patients.

Anyone who wants to mail masks to Phoebe should send them to:

Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital

1008 North Monroe St.
Albany, GA 31701

The Phoebe team and volunteers are using surgical sheets to make their reusable masks. The masks will be treated with water repellant in the laundering process. In the absence of surgical sheets, a thicker breathable water repellant fabric, such as durable 55%/45% polyester/cotton blend or similar may be used. Phoebe will accept any fabric design.
