New Zealanders are stocking up on facemasks.

In Level 3, Aucklanders are being asked to wear a face covering when outside the home. While the government is suggesting that the rest of the country should wear one when in a confined public space, such as using public transport or in the supermarket

While some people are buying masks some people are using their sewing machine to make their own.

Research showed masks were highly effective if worn properly, explaining particles could only travel up to 6cm rather than 2.5m if no mask is worn.

Two layers of quilting fabric or cotton was the best material for people wanting to make their own mask. While cotton offers more protection than fleecy materials like wool.
