We've been under quarantine due to the Corona Virus for quite some time now and if we have to be in public for essential needs, the rules have been quite clear to stay six feet from others and wear a mask to help minimize or stop the spread of the virus. While others are not wearing masks out of willful ignorance about the seriousness of the virus, some, have simply not known where to get them. Those without sewing skills but still wanting to take precaution have been using scarfs and bandanas but they have proven to be a nuisance as they are unable to stay up long enough run errands. As creatives have come together to eliminate the mask shortage for healthcare workers, they are now available to help the public get protected and because we uplift the creativity of people of African decent, here are five black female entrepreneurs making masks that can help you make your essential runs.

Even after the curve flattens, it will take eighteen to twenty-one months for the Corona Virus vaccine to become available to the public. This means we will more than likely need to continue to wear some form of protective gear when in public. Because some protection is better than no protection, don't get caught without any.
