Thanks. I found some info too. Pretty much like yours. I can say w/confidence that Washington state is taking masks at specific hospital/care setting. Each site is making that decision. Also there are sites that will supply at home mask making with hospital grade supplies. This is Washington state protocol. Need to lookup your area, I did see other states, so might be worth your time. Rubber bands are probably not a great option anyway. Workers in Seattle are wearing bandanas for protection, so home masks may be welcomed.
