During this time of isolation I have remained on the job as an essential worker- nurse. I have advised my patients family friends and community members to “Stay Home”. My contacts are with members of my community-well patients and sick-possible Covid exposures. To help me ease the restricted contact I am allowed, I created a mask with the words “Stay Home” beaded on the mask. The top blue line represents the blue sky as I hope everyone can see another day. The bottom green line for the grass- mother earth so we may all walk the path of life for another day. Lastly the small flower buds so we may all grow big, strong, and healthy so we may survive this pandemic.

This mask was created for the Breathe community Facebook group – A collection of traditionally crafted masks demonstrating resiliency through 21st century pandemic.
