Marine recruits and drill sergeants in San Diego have been making and wearing face masks from green shirts. These DIY masks require no sewing and the Marine Corps Combat Service Support Schools have released a tutorial on the process. Approved face masks cannot be offensive and must be conservative in appearance and issued balaclava and neck gaiters are also allowed. Some people have called for more action dealing with better social distancing guidelines since it has been proven that the virus won’t be truly stopped by cloth masks. The Corps has also issued a warning to Marines to avoid using a shirt or mask that has been treated with insect repellent.
