LA county recommends non medical face coverings when in public.

All of Cali will probably follow.

My Amazon arrived today a day early.

I’m one big scary ninja.

Maybe it's time to dig out those Halloween masks and dress up as your favorite characters.  :)

More and more cities probably will follow what Laredo, Texas is doing.  Laredo will be requiring every resident older than 5 years old to wear some sort of mask when going out in public. That includes when going to the store or even pumping gas.  If people are caught not covering their nose and mouth, they face a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $1,000 in Laredo.

They offer good protection.

This is a great article.

What caught my eye is this image:



Seems like 6 feet (over 1.5m) of separation is not enough if someone sneezes. Safest is 20 feet (6m) or more, which is why masks help.

KN95's are more readily available than N95s where there is a shortage...for mask experts are the KN95s good enough for the general public since they can't use them in hospitals even as donations?

Looks like OC is following state recommendation for face coverings:

As home depot and Amazon stopped selling N95 mask to the public, I think it's going to be difficult to common folks to get them.

A cloth face mask is not as effective.. (really aren't) but it will prevent you from touching your nose and mouth publically.

I had a few extra respirators from my model making hobby, but that's also pretty hard to get now.

"Demonstration (in Spanish) of masks that don’t work and work. The last two are a surgical mask and an N95."

what's an appropriate filter to put into a cloth face mask?  I've seen some people recommend coffee filter, but that can't possibly provide the proper protection, right?
Thanks in advance for the 'thanks'!!

I think it's more important to make them comfortable so you won't feel the urge to adjust them (touch your face)

"The rates of all infection outcomes were highest in the cloth mask arm, ... compared with the medical mask arm. ...Penetration of cloth masks by particles was almost 97% and medical masks 44%."

https://bmjopen.bmj.com/content/5/4/e006577

At least the cloth mask will help prevent you from touching your face.  Wonder how a cloth mask with a PM2.5 filter would help, like these: https://debriefme.com/products/black-n95?variant=14626365833258

In a high exposure setting for healthcare workers that the article used, I would assume cloth masks are less effective.

But for public use combined with social distancing, I would hope cloth masks help more than hurt.
