I think the issue with a lot of the masks is that people just put their hands all over it and don’t really know the concept of cross-contamination. I was leaving Ralph’s the other day and some guy was walking in getting ready to put on his surgeons mask.

He head handling both sides of the mask as if he had just washed his hands. So whatever he had on his hands got transferred to the inside of his mask and put right on his nose/mouth. With that said, that is from the perspective of infecting yourself, but it would help trap any particles from a sneeze, cough, breathing.  So still some benefit

This looks like a video from Mexico.  Guy testing a few types of masks with some type of an aerosol spray can:

Here's another one, but this time with 3 layers of fabric:

Here's where you can buy 1 box of 50 surgical masks.

Please only buy if you need them. They set the limit to 1 box per customer.

Saw this on NextDoor:

This is a local Tustin company that can ship in 24 hours:

https://www.bluebeatsales.com/product-category/health-care/

A little more pricey on the blue surgical masks that Ken posted but they have some of the more protective KN95 ones (please don't over order).

Thanks IHO, I picked up a box of the N95 masks.

Me too.  i cringe at how many I've thrown away over the years, because they were only a buck each or so.  Now paying for it, literally.  I have 3M respirators but they are a bit "imposing" for just making a Costco run.  Still, less conspicuous than a scuba set up.

That Blue Beat site is pretty price gougey.  My only option unfortunately, but they just raised their prices $10 from $55 to $65 for a 10-pack of masks.  Classic definition of price gouging.

Where is the line drawn between price gouging vs market prices (supply/demand). I’m not familiar with price gouging laws

From ca.gov:

What is price gouging?

Price gouging refers to sellers trying to take unfair advantage of consumers during an emergency or disaster by greatly increasing prices for essential consumer goods and services.
Is price gouging illegal in California?

Yes, in certain circumstances. California’s anti-price gouging statute, Penal Code Section 396, prohibits raising the price of many consumer goods and services by more than 10% after an emergency has been declared.

Local laws may also contain their own prohibitions on price gouging.

Seems kind of hard to prove vs supply/demand.

I guess that is why we don’t see many headlines about prosecution around price gouging.

I know qwerty doesn't like masks... but I think it's fun.

For one thing, it's convenient, don't have to worry about shaving... or brushing my teeth. :)

It's also interesting to see the types of masks people wear... from the scarfs to the homemade to the "only for healthcare" N95 masks.

Saw a couple of hardcore industrial masks with the re-breather valves... bmx/motorcycle masks seem to be popular too.

I think qwerty doesn't like wearing a mask because he's prettier than all of us.

That's the other thing... I have no idea if someone is smiling or sticking their tongue out at me.

New England study that shows even speaking sends out particles:

Masks help you “say it not spray it”. :)
