Since we are encouraged to wear a mask and keep a distance from others, I used materials on hand. The full face shield is a terrific guard and easy to clean with alcohol. I do own two hazmat suits used in the past for finish work. I sure hope I don’t have to go that far!

What masks are you wearing?

Cheers,

Cathy

I’ve been going out, and working with this one. Comfy to wear for long hours, and keeps my mouth/nose plugged. If we get any coughers at the 2 places I am staffing, I’ll follow your lead, and bring in my face shield. I hardly know these older folks, and I think I already scare them enough. The face shield may take it over the top.

I like your mask Steve. If I lived in New York city, I would not go out often. If I did, it would be with the respirator, face shield, gloves and a rain coat. In my lifetime, I never thought this would happen. It’s awful!

Take care…

Thanks Kathy. Perfect in my world.
I’m wearing several masks. For pollen and virus.
Hope everyone can avoid it.

I’m a essential Healthcare provider for the Indiana jail system. so they provide me with N95’s and face shields. so far. I do have a stash and a few Gershen P95 similar to what Therealseven has.
Unfortunately one of our nurses tested positive for Covid-19 and I had to get tested. Will find out at 11;00 tomorrow If I’m positive or not.

Scary until they are certain of more about this. I’ve heard too many tales about the incubation period, and sub clinical cases. Prayers that your test is ok, in that your not IT.

Wife has been working from home for 3 weeks. Last week one of the workers in the plant felt too sick to keep working. Test results today were + Covid 19. I asked her what TOO sick to keep working meant. Evidently She was ill, but trying to work through it….......

Used last of my N95 masks sanding some walnut. It is completely brown now.

Need new filters for my respirator as they are clogged with 2K poly too.

Of course I realize this right as crisis hit USA and replacements are nowhere to be found?

When CDC said people need a mask to go outside, asked my wife if this mask would substitute?

Her response was priceless:
Just go naked fat man, that will scare every one to stay at least 10 ft away!

Ouch…..

Last one of the N95 masks from work. That one is used at work. Until now I was nearly the only person to use them when sanding. The last few were stolen by a co-worker. Nine person shop. From home, I have a couple of used ones in good shape. The best one stays in my car for use when buying food. HEY THEY CAN BE CLEANED AND USED SAFELY I think. Blow off with low PSI air, spray with 95 % alcohol, let dry

LMAO Cap’n K, you made laugh of the month with that one. :-) Love that mask.

This thread got me thinking. For the first time since I was given the diagnosis of COPD, I now know having all the varied masks I have for woodworking, and welding are now a blessing. I can go N95, P100, half face, full face, with puffs or canisters, and a couple of cloth ones I use to mow with.

I’ve been supplying the Nurses at the 2 places I’ve been working to help fill in. First time it hasn’t just been a diagnosis I wish I didn’t have.

I’m using the last N95 mask that I have. The old one that I wore going to the local farmer’s market still smells like mahogany on the outside. sniff, aahhh! I’m going to go online and order a face shield that has the HEPA filter and a fan. I don’t have the dread disease yet, so I’m safe to be an ejector of bad breath fumes. I WILL say that my wife’s friend who thinks that the contagion is “all in God’s hands” and is still intent on visiting her extended family over the Easter weekend won’t be welcome here any time soon.

We MAY have had it back in December, based on what the symptoms seem to be like. If that is true, I don’t hold much hope for immunity, because I’ve seen where there may be three variants, so who knows what is coming next? It might be a vicious mutant, now. Stay safe and careful, folks!
