DIY PPE, in the Garage

In a time that everyone, to a greater or lesser degree, has become a do-it-yourselfer, David Levy took it upon himself to go full-bore low-tech DIY and manufacture an item of PPE with store-bought materials.

In a video, Mr. Levy explains how protective hoods can be made for emergency room nurses and physicians with sheets of Tyvek, packing tape, and report covers. An orange Home Depot bucket also comes in handy.

Mr. Levy welcomes other who may want to join the effort, and says he can provide templates, material, and distribution. He can be reached by email to
