You Can Make a Coronavirus Face Shield in 2 Minutes Using a Krispy Kreme Box

People have gotten pretty inventive with how they protect themselvesand othersagainst COVID-19. You'll find masks made out of socks , t-shirts, and old underwear. Now, magician Andy Clockwise takes creativity to a new level with his DIY Krispy Kreme face shield.

This Krispy Kreme COVID-19 Face Shield is Genius

In a new YouTube video, Clockwise makes a shield using the lid of a Krispy Kreme box, scissors, and tape. Even better, the entire process takes less than 2 minutes and fits well, according to Clockwise.

"It's quite comfortable," he says.

And it's pretty genius, too, since this gives you an excuse to swing by Krispy Kreme. Another bonus: you can even eat while wearing the shield, as Clockwise demonstrates by eating a donut.

And, no, you cannot use a Dunkin' Donuts lid, as one fan points out in the comments.

"I work for Krispy Kreme and this is making the rounds in the office. Laughs galore. Dunkin' can't do this...," they write. That's because Krispy Kreme uses plastic on the top of their lids, which make it transparent so you can see. Using a plain paper box lid might leave you bruised from bumping into the wall. Of course, you don't have to don a full face shield to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends cloth face coverings when you can't maintain social distancing. These provide a simple, effective barrier that prevents respiratory droplets from traveling into the air. You can easily make a face mask at home using materials you already have. Or, less crafty guys can buy an affordable mask that supports charities for frontline workers and small businesses.
